if i understand you right =
if i want to list files in rootdirectory
only, but exclude all dirs/files beyond rootdir, using DirectoryScanner
ain't possible ?!

So i have to roll my own thing.

i thought, i'll take a thing that's already around in core classes of
ant, DirectoryScanner in that case.
OK, i understand that includes/excludes are mostly for naming
conventions, f.e. i want only txtfiles that start with foobar* or
But it looks like i can't exclude subdirectories, like i that it
were possible with the right pattern.
