Unless you guard against it with some properties or something, this is
what would happen in the current implementation.

If <antcall> only reuses the same object tree as the parent build, we
should be able to avoid that.

Why is <record> OK here?  It could overwrite an existing logfile (at
least on file systems where Java doesn't lock files it is writing to).
