Yep, the idea is to generate Ant build.xml snippets using XSLT starting 
from the forrest.xconf file and then include those using XML entities, 
the Ant or your new Import Task in the main build environment. I'm 
biased towards the Ant 'Ant' Task right now, since I assume it is 
working already and offers some isolation between the different projects 
being build by Forrest. But I would be happy to switch to another 
approach if someone suggests me to do so.
