Not planned, no. Most people are good with <include>/<exclude> +
selectors.

If you want to select files based on their names matching a full regex
as opposed to the limited ? and * of <include> and <filename>, write a
<filenameregexp> selector. If you provide test and doc for it, and use
the Regexp impl independent API Ant provides, I see no reason it
wouldn't be accepted. --DD
