I would imagine that, for any given (org, module, conf), the  
resolution information (i.e. the xml file produced) is only specific  
to, well, the org+module+conf, but _not_ to any particular build or  
project.  That information only becomes out-dated when the  
corresponding ivy.xml has been changed, which normally I don't see  
happening between concurrent builds.  Between different projects, it  
wouldn't be an issue at all because another project would have a  
different module id and hence a completely different set of resolution  
files, wouldn't it?
