Subject: "Including" external build.xml files

We're interested in having a core "build.xml" file with the necessary logic
to build our application.  In addition we'd like to have some non-essential
but convenient build targets available but not clutter up the core

For example, our core java compile stage will compile everything at once.
For the convenience of developers it's nice to have a javac target
per-package so they can just compile the package they are working on and not
the whole tree.

Is it possible to have a convenience.xml that "includes" the build.xml?  The
developers can use convenience.xml which provides access to the core targets
in build.xml and the convenient targets.  The nightly build process can
simple use build.xml.
