I believe Felipe Contreras was the first one to suggest something like this.
But it's good that you brought it up. I wasn't too exited about it before,
but now I think that it could actually be useful to have it?
Especially considering that we can't decide on a good names for those
<*build> elements. ;) Adding a generic tag like this wouldn't break
the syntax latter on, however we name them.
It could also be a good compromise between those thinking that <*build>
elements are totally useless, and those thinking they are a Good Thing?
And we could even use it for more that just <package> stages, to group
some elements logically (something Felipe was also suggesting).
