Please allow Ant users to define the default set of excludes

           Summary: Please allow Ant users to define the default set of
                    excludes
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: j_r_fallows@yahoo.com


The set of default excludes are currently hardcoded in the source for Ant.
End users cannot easily modify this set without recompiling Ant (and therefore 
not using a released version).
As a workaround, excludes can be set for every fileset based task, but this is 
cumbersome and error-prone.
If the default set was externalized to, say, an xml or properties file, which 
was initially populated with the same set as is currently hardcoded, then no 
negative impact would be felt by existing Ant users, but those who need to 
customize the default excludes set could do so.
