Personally I think we could get away with starting
from the current basedir and
<ant>/<include>/what-have-you can resolve relative to
that.  I can't remember what the arguments are against
that, but to me this just seems like advanced (i.e.
you'd better know what you're doing) usage.  And by
allowing the brave to indulge their sense of adventure
we become vicarious heroes...

I don't know why I wrote that.  :)
