Allow Clearcase tasks to take a fileset

           Summary: Allow Clearcase tasks to take a fileset
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ats37@hotmail.com


Currently, the Clearcase checkin/checkout tasks can only be used on a single file or directory,
specified using a viewpath attribute.  It would be nice if I could specify a fileset instead,
and the checkin/checkout command execute automatically on all the files in the fileset.  This
would be particularly useful since Clearcase's cleartool command doesn't have any -recursive
option; if the task supported a fileset I could just specify includes="**/*.java" in the build.xml
instead.

Also, I notice in the javadoc comments of the org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.clearcase.ClearCase
class, it says "The class extends the 'exec' task", yet so far as I can see it doesn't - the
class only extends Task, not ExecTask, and doesn't make any use of the extra features (e.g.
a timeout watchdog in case the command hangs) that the ExecTask offers.  Perhaps it should
be refactored so that it does?
