in a bad mood today, aren't we?  I hope you feel better now.

Ant's patterns are sufficient for a wide range of use cases and you pretty
rarely need the full power of regular expressions.  If you need the power,
writing a custom selector isn't too hard.  In fact Ant's trunk has enhanced the
<filename> and <name> selectors to either use an Ant pattern or a regular
expression.
