Subject RE: refactoring a large project

That's more ambitious that what I had in mind, but it's great. I like the
name <subbuild> (or <sub-build> is element name can contain dashes) better

In the meantime, I think a simpler <multi-ant> that internally creates a new
<ant> for each sub-project and allows inferring the target name to run in
the sub-build from the target name currently running would satisfy many
people. And it could easily be 1.5 compatible.

I have some ideas for redoing <ant> too; I work sporadically on apache axis,
and it needs something better. But I wont call it ant, I would go for a
clean no-compatibility-issues <build> call. One problem I am still thinking do I run fork=true and pass down things like references and
typedefs? I may have to serialize stuff to a file and have a second entry
point to ant to load the stuff in.
