${file.separator} does not work for regexp mapper but that is a minor 
issue; the real issue, IMHO, is using mappers within other tasks. For 
example, the xslt/style allows a nested mapper type="regexp" but that 
does not support the  handledirsep attribute. regexpmapper does, but 
that subtask is not allowed by xslt!

Anyway, i just defined a project property to use within mappers and that 
works well.
