> Theres an inconsistency (bug?) in the implementation of SizeFileFilter and AgeFileFilter.
> In SizeFileFilter, using an "acceptLarger" parameter of true actually accepts files with a size equal to and larger, whereas
> specifying an "acceptLarger" parameter of false only accepts smaller files.
> The same is true for AgeFileFilter, using an "acceptOlder" parameter of true actually accepts files either the same age or older, whereas
> specifying an "acceptOlder" parameter of false only accepts newer files.
> A big benefit of resolving these inconsistencies would mean that creating filters for any condition (i.e. <, >, <=, >= or =) becomes
> alot easier. For example if the AgeFileFilter did only do either newer or older, then creating a filters for "the same age or older"
> or "the same age or younger" could be done in the following way:
>     IOFileFilter equalOlder   = new NotFileFilter(new AgeFileFilter(cutoff, false));
>     IOFileFilter equalYounger = new NotFileFilter(new AgeFileFilter(cutoff, true));
> For SizeFileFilter I propose changing the logic to the following:
>     if (acceptLarger) {
>         return file.length() >= size;
>     } else {
>         return file.length() <= size;
>     }
> (This would mean that "new SizeFileFilter(cutoff)" would operate the same way)
> I have added isOlderFile() methods to FileUtils and propose that AgeFileFilter is changed to the following:
>     if (acceptOlder) {
>         return FileUtils.isFileOlder(file, cutoff);
>     } else {
>         return FileUtils.isFileNewer(file, cutoff);
>     }
