I agree - no reason to fill up the codebase with old cruft for supporting
backwards-compatibility with alpha versions...

It could be called <zipfileset> because it's the fileset used in <zip> tasks.
But it is confusing, since one of its purposes is to be able to reference ZIP
files as filesets. And because it can be used in <jar> and <war> tasks too. I
think <mapped-fileset> or <fileset-ex> or <zip-task-fileset> are all about
equally confusing or ugly, can't come up with anything better...
