  I agree with Conor. And I also like a possibility to execute subcomponent
build separately. 

  I do not know whether <import> allows the same build file to be included
several times from different components. This feature would allow having all
the dependencies in the (sub)component build files, not in the main build

I disagree (strongly :-). I think augmenting/overriding an existing build
is a valid use for import. I recently changed the checkstyle build I have 
been using (check.xml) to import Ant's build.xml to pick up property defs
various locations. Have a look.
