Reqm'ts bug? Can't specify Fileset with only includesfile

           Summary: Reqm'ts bug? Can't specify Fileset with only
                    includesfile
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.5.2
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: henrywcho@hotmail.com


This is a request to reconsider the way <fileset> works.  I would like to 
specify the files belonging to the set as only those contained in an include 
file.  There is no way to specify this.

The required syntax is as follows:

    <delete>
        <fileset dir="path-of-files" includesfile="include-file" />
    </delete>

This only works if I know and can specify the directory of the files that are 
being deleted.  Otherwise the delete fails and Ant goes on to the next task.  
This doesn't allow me to specify the paths in the include file (which in my 
case is generated by an outside script).
