No, because this would resolve antfile relative to the current
project's basedir instead of relative to the value of the dir
attribute (which it must do for backwards compatibility, if not for a
better reason).

I've applied a patch that should make <ant> treat DOS "absolute" paths
that don't start with a drive letter for the antfile attribute the
same way other paths are handeled in Ant.
