You are aware that we couldn't decide on a format for the FileSet ->
String conversion when we talked about it the first time 8-)

The most common use I see for a FileSet to String conversion is in the
context of <exec> and <java> like tasks. There is no hard rule to
apply which format is best as different tools will need different
delimters - and only the one writing the build file can chose the
correct one.
