Sure Stefan, but...

Shouldn't <apply> accept a <filelist> as well, and shouldn't <filelist>
accept 
an external file listing the files (in the correct order)???

And more importantly, shouldn't all tasks accept a generic FileCollection data 
type that fileset/filelist/etc would implement??? This polymorphism of 
datatypes can be achieved with references, and each datatype would order the 
files or not as it pleases from datatype specific criteria. Tasks would just 
process the files in whatever order the concrete data type returns them ;-)
