The paths won't depend on A's basedir. They won't event depend on B's basedir. 
They will only depend only on B's location.

So if B and C are in the same dir and B's basedir is "..", the import for C 
will still be <import file="C"> - i.e. basedir in B is ignored. What 
Dominique meant when he said everything is resolved to A's basedir he really 
meant everything *except* import paths (I hope that is what he intended). So 
fileset dirs, etc are resolved to A's basedir even if they are declared in B 
or C.

Clear as mud?
