Note that this is not only true for <copydir>, <javac> did the same as
long as the "copying support files" behavior was there.

To explicitly restrict the filters to use? Say I have

  <filter token="token1" value="value1" id="filter1" />
  <filter token="token2" value="value2" id="filter2" />
  <copydir src="src" dest="dest">
    <filterref refid="filter1" />

would apply the first filter but not the second? No filterrefs means
filters get ignored? This will sure break some build files but, yes, I
like it.
