copy task preserving permissions

Digging this back up again.

Just to let you know, I have completed a library which does file permissions 
on both filesystems with Posix-based permissions and NTFS.

I have contributed this to the jst (Java System Toolkit) library, which is 
maintained on sourceforge (jst.sourceforge.net).  Interestigly enough, there 
was NO build system in place on that project, which I fixed by creating an ant 
build file, which uses cpptasks from ant-contrib to build the native libraries.

I now await the fix for the FileUtils to be overridable.  Any status on this?  
Is there something I can help with?

I noticed some other annoying things on ant that could be fixed by permission 
getting/setting.  untar doesn't set the file permissions up properly (which 
could be fixed by the new jst library).  Also, tar itself relies on the ant 
arguments to set permissions, very annoying.
