There is a proposed javadoc patch which uses a semicolon separated list.
Your patch has a comma separated list.  The existing MatchingTask accepts
either a space or a comma.  And, of course, Javac uses the system dependent
path.separator (so much for portable build.xml files).

In short, we are slowly accumulating a patchwork quilt of ad-hoc
mechanisms.

I'd like to propose that in all cases we support nested XML elements.  In
many cases, I believe that this will be sufficient.  If necessary, we can
support delimited lists in attributes as an alternate syntax.

An example of this approach can be found in the current version of
MatchingTask.java.
