So you're basically saying you don't want any authentication?

The workspace itself does not use UserAdmin. If you look at the RESTClientServlet, it has
a "createWorkspace" method that has a plug-able authentication mechanism that you can use
if you don't want to rely on the default mechanism. I suggest you plug-in your own mechanism
there that returns an implementation of User you made yourself.

I think what I suggest above is a bit cleaner than extending the Workspace.

Did you look at some of the work that Bram did recently (on top of the initial set of commands
I came up with)? That already has some commands (implemented in the Workspace) for StatefulTargets.
