Thanks, DD, that looks like it does what I want. However, I only want to
apply this selector to a subset of the entries in the fileset. I forgot to
mention that in the original email.

For example:


I want to select everything, but only apply the <present> selector to
anything under \alpha (everything under \beta and \gamma should be selected
as normal). I can't seem to find a solution without using two FileSets.

This is more out of curiosity.
