Has been working for <fileset> IDs forever I can remember, but this has only
recently been extended to <path>, and you might not get it in a form that's
suitable. For older Ant versions, you'll get Object.toString, i.e. something
like <classname>@<systemid>. <pathconvert> with ${file.separator} and
${path.separator} (no targetos needed) is the canonical answer. --DD
