If the documentation contained snippets of build files that show ant
features working together, it would be more obvious.

Well it is not a recomended way of doing things and such functionality
would disapear completely in Ant2 so I am not so sure it is a good idea to
add it in. In Ant1 some would suggest you use ant-call and generic targets
but in ant2 we will have a comprehensive solution for that sort of thing -
at least if I have my way ;)
