patch with code, doc, test

This is useful for test cases to share filesets, Ivy configuration, or other bootstrapping code, and for testing of scripts that are designed to be included in larger builds.

The idea was discussed briefly on ant-dev:

The attached patch tries to mimic the behavior of <propertySet>:

* support single reference inheritance
* support for multiple reference inheritance with regex, <referenceSet> grouping
* support for prefixing or transforming reference names with a <mapper>

<ant><reference/></ant> tries to clone the reference value in the sub-build.  I preserved that behavior for consistency, even though it seemed a little strange.

added a modified version with svn revision 939555, thanks!

It may be worth to look into extracting the common logic of your changes and the <ant> task into a helper in Ant's core that could be used by both tasks - but then AntUnit's next release couldn't be released without a new release of Ant.
