The Nant-like lists is one of the reasons we wanted to drop nant
altogether ;-)

This is cumbersome, because sometimes we would create a temporary file,
in that directory and the classes in that directory would get pulled
into the library, or would subtly break the build when removed.

I liked the old setup a lot more.
