I've been looking for a FileTree that I can incrementally add base dirs to (cf. MutableFileCollection). Right now I have to use plus() which gives me a new FileTree and gets me into evaluation order troubles.

@peter, FileTree.plus() is lazy, so you can use it without worrying about evaluation order.

We should still provide a mutable implementation, though.

What I needed was the ability to pass a FileTree to some other class and later add base dirs to it. Without that ability, my code became much more complex. The fact that FileTree.plus() is lazy didn't help here.
