<length> should work even if you pass in <zipfileset>s
and therefore give you the lengths of all the
constituent resources... but at that point you'd
probably be just as well writing something to process
the resources directly using Ant or Java APIs rather
than parsing the output of <length mode="each" />.

I had taken the request literally; that the archive
should be broken into smaller files that would be
reassembled later into the original archive... nothing
to that.  But each split file would be unusable on its
own.  I believe the tool that used to do something
like this, and was mentioned by another user, was RAR
(I could be wrong though).
