------- Additional Comments From jefft@apache.org  2003-02-13 11:54 -------
Yes, can't think why I marked it 'bug' rather than 'enhancement'.

IIRC, the point I wanted to make was that the implementation is overly
restricting the semantics. Conceptually, why shouldn't <fileset dir="x"> be
generalized from "a set of files below x" to "a set of files whose path starts
with x"?  Makes perfect sense to me as a user. Imagine if bash disallowed 'ls
../*'. 

*Practically*, this is all marsh gas; futzing with the API would kill
backwards-compat. But why let reality get in the way when filing bugreports :o)
