Which documentation?

We don't tell people that <lib> is a zipfileset because they may get
confused when they try to use the prefix attribute then.  It must be a
zipfileset, so that it can get mapped to prefix="/WEB-INF/lib".

which is good in situations where you really have to be sure that you
are dealing with a zipfileset - and bad when you don't care.  There is
no good implementation that works in both cases, I'm afraid.

I think this is what Conor had to do for <classfileset> to work.  Not
sure whether it is the correct solution, though.

But then again, you can always cast the returned object, when you
really must be sure that you are dealing with - say - a zipfileset.

Is this really new?
