Please allow Ant users to define the default set of excludes





------- Additional Comments From gus.heck@olin.edu  2003-05-04 14:01 -------
It would be nice if this took the form of:

<defaultexcludes add="foo.ignore"/>
<defaultexcludes remove="CVS"/>

also usefule would be
<defaultexcludes echo="true"/>   (to print the current excludes)

or 

<echo><defaultexcludes/></echo> perhaps? 

Though this might be difficult, and substantially complicate the echo code which
is quite simple right now.

perhaps <echo special="default excludes"/> would be better, appending the
default excludes to any other message should it exist.

If I seem ambitious later today I might play with this, though I suspect
replacing the static array in DirectoryScanner is going to be grep intensive...

Any thoughts?
