Sure?  How many are too many?  I've seen and run compilation processes
with thousands of java files in a single pass ...

something like

<javac destdir="classes">
  <src location="A" />
  <src location="B" />
  <exclude name="pattern-that-matches-most-files-in-A" />

<javac destdir="classes">
  <src location="A" />
  <src location="B" />
  <exclude name="pattern-that-matches-most-files-in-B" />

and use multiple excludes if you cannot come up with a single pattern.
