How platform-independent do you need to be? If you're unix-only, you could
just <exec> a 'sh -c "find . -type f | wc -l"' with the "outputproperty"
attribute set, then use <condition> (assuming you're running 1.4) to
compare the value of your "integrity check" property with the
"outputproperty" property.
