Yes - didnĀ“t knew that.

I suggest providing two buildfiles:
- build.xml:  master file iterating over all modules
- common.xml: define the build targets

Each module then has its own buildfile, maybe only with
  <project name="module-eclipse">
      <!-- 'overwrite' properties from common here -->
      <import file="../common.xml"/>
      <!-- 'overwrite' paths from common here -->
