As a starting point, read the "Developing with Ant" section of the user
manual. But I think you'll probably need to extend MatchingTask rather
than Task if you're going to be allowing for filesets, so you should look
through the source-files in org/apache/tools/ant/taskdefs for other tasks
that use filesets as examples of how to do that.
