filename.

we call it unix. 

[slo@eiger slo]$ touch test\"t
[slo@eiger slo]$ ls t*
test"t

Also

1. you would encounter the problem of how to put quotes in quotes in XML. It can
be done but then you have to deal with single quotes in filenames as well as
double quotes

2. what about breaking backwards compatibility.

The latter is critical, we hate to do changes that could break old builds, even
if they are a little ugly., So this stays a wontfix.

However, if you have a patch to the fileset that would print a warning in
-verbose when a trim()'d filename doesnt match the original, we may be able to
provide better diagnostics without breaking anything. How does that sound
