[PATCH] Enhance ExecOn with DirSets

           Summary: [PATCH] Enhance ExecOn with DirSets
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gus.heck@olin.edu


As per my corespondance with Stefan on the dev list, 

http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=ant-dev&m=105367047624558&w=2 

I have added dirset support to ExecOn.java (and thus to attrib, chmod, chgrp,
and chown). Making it work and not messing up the old type=file but not
requiring type=dir to use dirsets took a little thinking. I settled on an
implementation that esentially checks to see if it is handling a dirset and
gives the nested dirset priorety over the type="file". This seems to provide
full back compatability and the nice feature that you can still control the
behavior of filesets with type="file" and then slip in a few directories with a
dirset.

The cost of course is that reading type="file" in the top line of a long chmod,
nolonger guarantees that nothing below represents a directory, but only
specifies how filesets will be handled.

Not specifying type is the same as specifying type="file" so people who just
want to use a dirset can just use it.
