yes, I saw that when I looked at it. Now, if we defined one of two 
things we could address this

1. have a ProjectInfo class that includes (name,location URI,resource 
ref,basedir) of a build file.  Attach one to every project, give child 
project's info about their parent

2. have every Project retain a ref to its parent.

#2 worries me from a memory perspective; as long as each child project 
has a lifespan shorter than its parent all is well. Some embedded uses 
could maybe do bad things. Also it lets people write tasks that 
manipulate their parent and grandparent's state.
