Subject Re: Aggregation of <fileset> or <path> ?

<path/> elements can be nested, and so can be aggregated in the way you describe.
I'd suggest steering clear of handling filesets directly, instead always wrap them in a <path/>.

Unfortunately far too many 3d party tasks do use them directly - which is a pain :(

  Subject: Aggregation of <fileset> or <path> ?

  The concept is a "fileset" or "path" is great, but I have to label each 
  one, I can't aggregate them for 2 or more.

   <fileset refid="my.fileset.unique"/>

  I want the above "fileset" to actually be 2 or more filesets as if I had 
  written them out like:

    <fileset refid=""/>
    <fileset refid="my.fileset.unique.two"/>

  But be labeled as a single label "my.fileset.unique".

  Maybe a <filesetgroup> is needed:

  <filesetgroup id="my.filesetgroup.foobar">
    <fileset refid=""/>
    <fileset refid="my.fileset.unique.two"/> 

  Where <filesetgroup refid="my.filesetgroup.foobar"/> could be used in 
  _ANY_ place that a regular <fileset/> could be.
