I, too, think that they are separate, but what I am building is much more
than a tinderbox tool.  Specify the specific versions of the various
projects you want in your workspace, and your configuration will be made to
your precise specifications.  You are also left with two batch files /
shell scripts that can be used to update and build any or all of the
projects at any time.  Syntax:

   update ( all | project... )

   build ( all | project [target...] )

In short, I plan to use it they way I used to use the various
build.bat/ scripts that are associated with the various projects.

I don't know if this is relevant, but there isn't any Java content in the
project itself at the moment.  I've also avoided an product specific XSL
extensions.  This being said, this code was designed to target Jakarta and
related projects.
