I suspect that originally there was more magic that was being done with each 
build file. This is no longer the case so we can get rid of it. As matter of 
fact we can inline the whole call-project-target "target" and get rid of an 
extra layer of antcalls.

works for me.

I will chage the build file to behave like you suggested.
