I will concede that the manual could be more explicit:  "The called target(s)
are run in a new project; be aware that this means properties, references, etc.
set by called targets will not persist back to the calling project."

Finally, you should be aware that for probably going on five years now macros,
rather than <antcall>ed targets, are the preferred way to perform
compartmentalized tasks within your build.  I don't believe I've run into a
situation where a macro wouldn't suffice for what I was trying to accomplish.
