No idea. Despite looking for quite a while, for something that did
what I wanted, I've never found anything. So I wrote something. Its
small, and simple, but even as it stands is seems to be decreasing the
amount of duplication in my ant files. 

The "embed proposal" is something I've not heard off. I managed to
find the source, from poking around in the ant CVS. Is there any
documentation anywhere? If someone else is working on something
similar, I would be happy. I'm only writing tools for operating over
build files out of necessity.
