Yup, I saw that code. Obviously Avalon/Phoenix needs to shift to a sandbox (no file io etc),
sar's ask for extra rights, "all" being one of the things it can ask for in it's server.xml

How does a server app commincate this need of a nerly installed sar to the sysop who can grant
 Popup Dialog?... no I guess.  Console based y/n question - probably.  What's prpbably needed
an abstraction of "Authorizer", which defaults to console but custom implementations can redirect
the grant request to other places/machines.

I'm quite out of my depth here on the security, however I did buy the Prentice Hall J2 Network
Security book :-)
