If filesets, etc, were to allow a "pathref=" or "path=", in stead of "dir=",
that would be a pretty good start.

The expected behavior would be similar to the SOURCEPATH behavior -- find the
first unique filename on the path.

To make this applicable in the maximum number of places, it were probably best
to have a special tag <vpath ...> a la <path>. The difference being that <vpath>
never yields the same basename twice:

<vpath ...>
  <pathelement ... source/ ...>
  <pathelement ... othersource/ ...>
</vpath>

When you use a vpath instead of a path, of "SomeName.ext" is located in source/,
then the copy of SomeName.ext in othersource/ is not reported.
