Not only a child, but within the same build.xml file as well -- although,
starting at 1.5, it'll bark at you if it's within the same project (ie.,
done within the same target or via 'depends' rather than via
<ant>/<antcall>(/<foreach>). It's a "mutability hole" that was left in for
backward compatibility.
