Sadly, this is really a CANTFIX, rather than a wontfix. 

As you yourself said, "Not sure how to do a stat() from Java"

There is no easy way to do it; one was promised for Java1.4 but it didnt make 
the cut, we cant use JNI without shipping a library for every platform ant 
runs on, etc. Unless something can be done calling an external app, the way we 
get environment variables on many platforms, we are all going to have to wait 
for Java1.5. The same problem arises with <copy>, so everyone is aware of it.

sorry.
