This idea seems very similar to the common practice of keeping a
projects jar dependencies in a remote repository (via ivy or similar).
 While there are certainly issues to consider (looking into people's
problems with maven plugin versioning for some examples), the idea
itself isn't that outlandish.

If you're comfortable keeping your internal artifacts in an ivy
repository for re-use by other project's later, its not a big stretch
to consider keeping bits of the build.xml definition there as well.
