Yes, I know. It was some kind of quick fix I personally needed. But
directories named doc-files are special to javadoc (since Java 1.2) so
this case might be more common than others.

I'm going to change that to drop every directory whose name is not a
valid Java identifier - once get time and some other things have been
done to Ant before. Make that step 7 or 8 on my personal TODO list for

This might be an even better solution (I could have set
excludes="**/doc-files/**" like I do on my javac target then). Maybe
you will find time to work on your wish list before I get there 8^).
