You're right, it's a big problem in actual code that will be fixed in 1.1 (not in 1.0.3).
We'll use acegi security framework for that.

We need to parse the pom when we add it for initializing it in Continuum. We'll can perhaps
allow to

It's a possible solution to implement.

All help are welcome. File an issue and attach your patches. We'll look at them.
