Yes, you are right for all released versions of Ant.

Ant 1.5 will have (and the current CVS tree has) an additional
parameter and additional child elements for the <ant> task that will
allow you to pass references to the subbuild.

For released versions of Ant, you could place the definition of the
fileset(s) into a different file and include it in all build files
that need it, <>.
