This does make the build.xml simpler, but at the expense of comlicating 
common.xsl.  I really like the fact that I can just use $path anywhere I 
want.  Yes, we will probably need to add more "levels" to build.xml 
eventually, but I still think I prefer a compicated build.xml to a 
complicated common.xsl.
