The way I have it now is that for each <depend> I add an <include 
name={@project}-*.jar/> to the <fileset> . We could add a library 
attribute that overides the project attribute. For instance:

<project name="cocoon-block-axis">
  <depend project="xml-axis" library="axis"/>

On the other hand, I think there are also cases (actually perhaps 
xml-axis it one) where one project delivers more than one jar. In that 
case perhaps library attribute must become a comma separated list. On 
second thought it may be better to create a <library> child element.
