While a <fileset> with no <include> or 'includes' attr does include everything
not specifically excluded, it does seem weird that an explicit 'includesfile'
which happens to be empty would include anything.

The documentation for include in patternset mentions the special behavior of no
includes, but the documentation for includesfile does not say this. Since there
is a risk of backward incompatibility by changing this behavior, I would
recommend documenting it, and issuing a warning with an explanation if an empty
includesfile (attribute or nested element) is encountered.
