Yes, I see that now.  I hadn't realized that 1.3 was so close.  Thanks.

The problem was my own :).  I hadn't set the task up properly before.  I had
thought that 
	<fileset dir="..." .>
was equivalent, but it wasn't.  There was a problem with <delete> that has
been addressed in 1.3 with "includeEmptyDirs" and I thought that meant that
you couldn't do what you described above.

Everythings great.  Thanks for Ant 1.3
