Delete task can't delete a directory based on a name pattern

           Summary: Delete task can't delete a directory based on a name
                    pattern
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.4
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: scott.stirling@workscape.com


Use case: Weblogic has an EJB-related temp dir that get generated at startup 
and is kept under the domain home, when and if deploying EJB jars.  This temp 
dir should be deleted between server restarts in development mode, along with 
some other dirs that cache generated and unpacked J2EE component archives 
between restarts.  It's just the surest way to avoid caching problems with J2EE 
components when working with Weblogic.

The name is generateed based on some attributes of the local machine name and 
the current Weblogic server instance, e.g., tmp_ejbmyhostname27001myserver.

To make a long story short: it would be nice in a team environment to be able 
to delete variabley-named directories like this with a shared clean target.   
But the delete task does not support any way to delete a directory by name 
pattern, as it does with files and fileset includes/excludes.  This would be 
useful in other contexts, but the Weblogic use case is a real one.
