I avoid the <war> task, copy all files to a directory that looks like 
a WAR structure and <jar> it up.  I find this useful since, for local 
testing, I need an exploded WAR structure anyway.  I only create the 
.war file when I'm ready to deploy to an app server instead of just 
run from my exploded WAR directory.
