Really?  At least in my mind it still corresponds to a CVS module or
SVN directory.

I really still see <project> in line with the ant|maven|make
definition, conceptually, but we do have problems making it that
because we'd need to run multiple targets.

Yes, that would fit my mental model much better, but still, <module>
does not correspond to an Ant build file here.

Take a look at the nummber of jars created by the dist-ant project.
No, I don't want to create one project for each of them, in particular
since they all get created with a single Ant target.
