I think that some guys do the following :

<fileset dir="foo" id="foofileset"/>
<zipfileset refid="foofileset" prefix="libraries"/>

We came across this when I did the work to make zipfileset become a top level type in 1.6.
At some stage the construct above did not work any more and some projects in gump did not
build. I do not remember the exact details.
