I would like to able to create filesets for directories which don't yet
exist and only get an error when the fileset is used. Not sure if the same
should apply to paths, constucted from such filesets (since that would
constitute a "use" of the fileset. This would imply deferred evaluation of
filesets and possibly paths. I'll have a look into the impact of that.
