If you really wanted you could "break" up one big build.xml into a set of smaller .xml files
and use the <import> task to bring them all back together at run-time...

Not really... each target performs a specific task, and the one main

in the analogy, is fairly small and simple, there just happens to be a 
fair number of them.

As with writing actual code, if you space things well and comment 
decently, the visual cues of where the various parts are makes it look 
relatively organized.
