pathconvert: dirsep should not be restricted to 1 char

           Summary: pathconvert: dirsep should not be restricted to 1 char
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.4.1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: make@bestoffers.de


Currently I have to replace some paths 
in policy files. These policy files will
be partially used in unix and in windows 
environments.

A nice feature of policy files is that you
may use platform independend path separators
by specifying them as ${/}.

If the pathconvert task would recognize dirsep
values longer than 1 character, it could be
easily used to convert a normal path into such
a policy path. 

An example:

	<pathconvert dirsep="$${/}" property="wls.home.policypath" >
		<path path="${target.wls.home}"/>
	</pathconvert>

with target.wls.home= d:\weblogic
would convert place a resulting path of 
'd:${/}weblogic' into the property
wls.home.policypath. This property than
in turn may be used as a filter on some
policy template file to create a concrete
policy.

I will attach a small modification based
on the PathConvert.java file of Ant 1.4.1
which demonstrates (probably better) what
I want to achieve.
