For [1]:

First of all, I have no idea what options to set here...are the merlinProp
Properties there to supply a client-side certificate? (and thus not
necessary if I'm doing a UserName token sort of thing?)  I think it's
confusing that there's both a setUser(..) and setEncryptionUser(..); not
sure if I should just put the same thing in both places...then, after that,
it's not clear if this will override my options.setUserName(..) setting.
And what's the deal with the password callback? Can't we just supply a
password as a string without requiring a callback?

I tried it anyway, but here's where I get stuck:

   1. StAXOMBuilder builder = new StAXOMBuilder("path/to/policy");
   Policy policy = PolicyEngine.getPolicy(builder.getDocumentElement());
   3. policy.addAssertion(rc);

I don't have a "path/to/policy", remember it's generated, so I'm stuck on

Thanks for the help! I don't mean to be a stickler or anything, I honestly
want to understand this all and there's just a bunch of things that haven't
been cleared up yet for me.
