That's not quite the way it is though.
There is no parent/child relationship, there is just an order of execution.

The "dependent" is actually executed first, (due to the nature of dependency)
 and therefore has first stab at the cherry. This is not a result of some
 "parent"/"child" relationship the way that 
	commandline => parent-script => project => target
 works, it is just a result of persistence and immutability of properties.
