Hmm. Ah, well. Writing out the project seems to be a fairly obvious 
functionality in comparison
to some of the exotic functionality of Ant. I guess it's just one of 
those things which in hindsight
the design should have accomodated, but which are difficult to retrofit 
given that the design
did not so accomodate.
