Ah, I missed both of these. And I even open BaseSelector.java...

Thanks Peter.

As to Jose Alberto's question, I doing something akin to a present selector,
which first creates a map of the target files using directory scanners...
Anyways, I've started it as a task for now, even though it
really could be a selector. --DD

There has been issues with ant core not setting the project for custom 
selectors early
enough to be useful. This has been fixed for ant 1.6, but could be a
problem
for ant 1.5. (Actually for any object that has got a public 
setProject(Project), ant 1.6
will attempt to call setProject(Project) on it as soon as possible).

>2) Can selectors be id'd/refid'd like tasks/types?
See:
