Just stick with FileSet, extending MatchingTask used to be the
preferred choice before FileSet was there.

If the javadocs of FileSet and DirectoryScanner don't get you where
you want, you'll have to look at the source - I think looking at the
code for Touch would be best to start.

Oh, and please improve the documentation to include all that has been
unintuitive and feed it back to Ant 8-)
