Now that you are into the do-it-yourself mode,
take a look at this link.  Please note that this patch
has been rejected as features like this are going to 
make its way into Ant2 using a better design - in

this.  This patch will specifically address your need
of having the ability to include/exclude files into a 
fileset based on its contents.
