includes/excludes attributes are merged together with the ones specified 
by <include>/<exclude> elements.  They require no further definition, 
and is a matter of preference to some extent or necessity if you're 
using if/unless on the elements.

Yes, it will be part of the next release version of Ant, but do not hold 
your breath.  It was almost a year between the releases of Ant 1.4 and 
Ant 1.5.  Most folks aren't quite as adventurous as me, but I run the 
CVS version of Ant - but its not trivial to build a full-version of it 
so be careful with the optional tasks which may or may not get compiled 
into optional.jar depending on whether you have the dependencies available.
