It has not been added for some reasons, one of them being that a
directory based Exec task would be somewhat ambiguos. We agreed on
reworking this a little - crafting a new task that would combine Exec
with MatchingTask but that would be new task of its own right.

I'm going to work on this, it's on my TODO list but only at position
five or six - I really want to include Thomas Haas execution framework
before I start anything like this, as this will improve Exec itself a

Oh and yes, this won't happen before the scheduled Ant release either
I'm afraid.
