I guess the thing is that I'm trying to follow the previous design
decisions used to the makefiles, and that isn't the best way to go about
using Ant. Since I have a lot of experience with make, and little with Ant,
it would make my life easier. However, it seems certain things are easy to
do with make, and hard to do with Ant, and vice versa.

The reason for using different project names for each subpackage, however,
is to distinguish between them. I don't really see the reason to use a
project name unless you're going to use it to distinguish the projects in
some way.

As an aside, can you have more than one project in a build.xml file? If
not, is there a reason why the javascript code needs to use the project
name, rather than some keyword, like "project"?
