Well, there are other possibilities. One would be to take advantage of the
fact that jar-files mentioned in the classpath that don't exist are
dropped from it. Another would be to use <script>, or write a task, to
provide that functionality. Or you could look at modifying FileSet.java to
take a "searchpath" attribute and propose your change to ant-dev. Or
lastly, there's always the unofficial <foreach> task.
