War task should flatten files in <lib> element





------- Additional Comments From j_a_fernandez@yahoo.com  2004-10-29 17:43 -------
What do you mean, that the files returned by the <fileset> will say they are 
in one place but they are actually comming from a different place? So when I 
find an error in some file, the class will write the wrong location because it 
thinks it is in a place where it is not?

Such thing will break 90% of the tasks that use <fileset>s. Most tasks do 
their own mapping given by its own rules (like javac). You cannt just change 
them any way you want and not expect concequences.

But I could agreed that we should have a more centralized concept for things 
that do read/write. Today read is expressed by <fileset> and write by <mapper>.
Much more tasks should support these two.
