XSLT can be another solution to this problem when the dirs are known
up front.

Yes, it's a pity they don't seem to be able to fix that.

CVS information:

   cvs -d co bsf-src
   password: anoncvs

There also is a mailing list available:
   subscribe bsf-discussion

although I've never received any messages on this list - 've been
subscribed for the last two weeks.

I now see how you want to implement your NestingTask approach, it
doesn't actually need to be a subclass of Task as ProjectHelper would
have to handle it differently anyway.

What other kind of functionality of a NestingTask would you envision,
apart from the foreach thingy you've described?
