I put a comment in with DERBY-616, referring to this discussion.
I linked DERBY-943 to DERBY-616.
I modified derby_tests.policy and put a comment above the new permissions
indicating it is for DERBY-616/DERBY-943. I hope the comment is clear...
I added a patch with the modification to derby_tests.policy to DERBY-943,
but I couldn't find the 'patch available' checkbox...
