Can I ask what you are trying to do?  The build-test thingy wont' get  
simpler because of this patch, because we want the build-test tool to  
record it's actions in fine detail, and the only way to do that is to  
do the actions individually.  Therefore, calling some do-everything  
target is a non-starter as lots of important information will be  
lost, with the only gain I can see is saving 19 lines of code that  
we'd write once and everyone would use.

it just hides information for no gain.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding your motivation?

Having that target in classlib is fine.  But I can't see why we'd  
ever want to use it in the context that we are discussing it....
