Matt, I could use a reason for rejecting nested filesets.  Ever since I learned about sets
I learned that you can 
create sets from the union and intersection of other sets.  So when you call something a "set"
you create such 
an expectation.  And the semantics I've described seem to meet all the semantics of the *existing*
fileset.  No 
need to create a new type.  So I also don't see why we have to get back to the Virtual FS
debates.  My suggested 
semantics are nothing new, just a new way to express the union that's direct and simple.
