They do, and it's a pain IMHO. Some (all?) also don't understand
properly, at least not when there are properties involved. My builds
out as:

<project name="foo" ...>
  <property environment="env" />
  <import file="${env.BUILDTOOLS}/config/module.xml" />

and for sure IntelliJ doesn't list the target which are not explicitly
foo, i.e. ignores all targets from the imported module.xml. Does any
IDE deals with this correctly?

Maybe the need the notion of an import path, which would allow IDEs to
lookup imported builds. I think it's been proposed before. --DD
