<touch> should support nested <filelist> elements

           Summary: <touch> should support nested <filelist> elements
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6Beta
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: gudnabrsam@yahoo.com


The touch task currently supports a File attribute, which may or may not exist, 
and nested FileSets, whose components, by definition, exist.  The behavior of 
the Unix touch command would be more faithfully modeled if nested FileLists 
were also permitted, as this would provide support for touching several 
possibly nonexistent files with one task invocation.
