You know how much I hate duplicating code :)  It *always* comes back to 
bite us later when we have multiple copies to debug and keep 
synchronized.  So personally I would prefer to create a dependency in 
the build file that checks out and builds the code that is needed from 
the seek/projects/ecogrid module (note you don't have to checkout the 
whole module, just the ecogrid part).  You can also do a dependency 
check automatically to see if you already have it checked out in your 
build dir, and if so can skip that step.
