Almost all the descriptors are restricted to a single package so that should 
be possible. Unfortunately ant does not have an <if/> task so you would end 
up having at a minimum 2 targets per package. And as there are about 7 (and 
rising) different packages to run this over, it would take more work to 
maintain the build files than woul d be saved by handmaintaining the 
descriptors ;)

If it doesn't then it has failed horribly ;)
