Provide a way to specify default excludes in a property file

           Summary: Provide a way to specify default excludes in a property
                    file
           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: aalbert.torsius@dcstrans.nl


I appreciate the work being done on the <defaultexcludes> task, but I still 
don't like having a hardcoded list of default excludes (DE's), the default 
default excludes, if you will.
For instance, if you want to use just some of the DE's, you need to keep track 
of exactly which patterns are on the hardcoded list and remove all except the 
ones you want. If a new release adds new patterns to the list, you need to 
adjust your build script.
A solution would be a file (property file, XML file) that specifies what DE's 
should be used.
This file could be used in two different ways:
- If detected at startup, use it, else possibly use hardcoded list.
- Use <defaultexcludes file="excludes.file"/>
I think the latter is preferred, since it uses an already known task and 
disturbs as little as possible.
