Let me follow up on this. First, please note that I like the new target
structure very much. It's simple, clean and comprehensible. However it's a
shame that Windows still has this 260 character limitation.

Maybe the second occurence of <profile> can be avoided. It seems to be
redundant to me, and leaving it out helps a bit with the 260 char problem.
Another idea would be to find a suitable way to shorten <srcpath>.

What do you think?
