Shouldn't that task be generalized?  We have Apply which executes an
external executable on multiple files.  Proposed AntOn executes Ant
on multiple build files.

Why not generalize this have some feature that executes an arbitrary task 
on multiple files? 

Then a build file writer would be able to combine iteration with any
action, not just with a few specific actions.
