My goal is to ensure that running derbyall tests all Derby's
functionality works with a security manager and a correctly, minimally
configured policy file. By minimally I mean just the fewset set of
permissions required, hopefully in-line with the documentation. E.g. a
policy file that allowed all permissions would work but would not be a
good test of Derby.

Other tests could be added with different policy files, or run existing
tests with a different policy file, like some tests are run with
encryption as well as without encryption. Some enhancments would be
needed to the test harness for this. I'm not scratching that itch,
though I believe nothing I doing would stop such development.
