Honestly, don't you think it'd would be simpler if you just wrote the half a
dozen lines of code that you'd need to create and configure a new Jar object
for each iteration?

The changes you're talking about to MatchingTask/FileSet/PatternSet just
don't seem to be worth the effort we'd need to put into applying, testing,
documenting and maintaining them.  Adding more methods just adds interia to
these types (which is something I'd be reluctant to see happen, having just
spent the last 3 weeks untangling these types in myrmidon), and the benefit
is questionable at best.
