Hi all. I'm just wondering if there is any planned support for including 
common build files. Somthing like <antinclude file ="foo.xml"/> to 
enable common build rules for multiple projects. I had a hunt thru the 
FAQ and only found this:

"You can use XML's way of including external files and let the parser do 
the job for Ant:
 <?xml version="1.0"?>

<!DOCTYPE project [
    <!ENTITY common SYSTEM "file:./common.xml">

<project name="test" default="test" basedir=".">

  <target name="setup">




which seems a bit clunky. My apologies if this has been discussed
