You can't do that with <sync> as it's currently coded. A possible
work-around is to "manually" flatten your fileset by breaking it into
different filesets, one per "leaf" dir, which thus contain only files.
Not practical if you have a lot of dependencies. Or since <sync> looks
like it works with the resource collection framework, you may be able
to work something out as a custom resource collection or somehow craft
a smart resource collection since they accept sorting / filtering
operators I think (I've never used them, so I can't help there). --DD
