You know I went back to it, and it caused a parse exception.  I think the
difference was that if the file was not there, it would throw a file missing
exception first, before finding the parse exception.  When the file was
there, then the parse exception would happen.  But maybe I just missed it
the first time through.

I agree.  I agree so much that I went in and modified the PatternSet data
type to support <excludesfile> and <includesfile> elements.  I will post my
changes as a patch later today.  Maybe you could review and submit them to
ant-dev for consideration?  I see your name in the
file...:-)  Or, I can make different changes to match what you think is
