Yes.  I was adding the functionality for my own use, and was hesitant to
mess with the existing source.  What I am doing (right now!) is coming up
with a version of <delete> which can delete a single file using the <file>
attribute, or can delete sets of files using a <dir> attribute, along with
<includes>, <excludes> and <defaultexcludes>.

<deltree> is different in that it deletes the directories too.
