I'm running build 638, but also I'm using a CVS HEAD build of Ant 
(version 1.6alpha), so I need to copy the files in.  I require the 
'file' attribute addition I made to <fileset> for my builds.

Again, I'm running a pretty recent (although not latest) EAP.

I have not spent a great deal of time working on this because what we 
have works, but there are still some unresolved issues in my IDEA 
environment that I'd like to troubleshoot at some point in the near 
future.  It could be my fault for putting some conflicting libraries in 
IDEA's lib directory, or some weirdness in IDEA.
