Oh, Ant does that.  createFileset or addFileset will be called once
for each fileset and they will be called in the same order they appear
in the build file.  It's again up to the task to preserve that order
(most tasks do as they pile them up in a Vector).

Let me try to rephrase: Ant 1.x will be JDK 1.1 compatible and Ant 2
will be JDK 1.2 compatible.

Not for everyone - the BSDs don't even have an 1.2 yet, MacOS 9
doesn't, HP/UX 10 will never get one and so on ...
