Even if it didn't, we'd still keep it around for backwards
compatibility and <unzip src="" dest="some-dir"/> may still be
easier to read and more convenient to write than

<copy toDir="some-dir">
  <zipfileset src=""/>

I'd stick with unzip unless I needed one of the additional features of
copy (like mapping file names).

When I worked on the resource collection stuff I stopped short of
turning zipgroupfileset into a resource collection as well.  That
would probably be what you have in mind.  A collection that creates a
zipfileset for each nested resource.

I don't remeber why I didn't go that far, probably because
zipgroupfileset was too strongly tied to the zip task to decouple it
in a convenient way.
