> In looking at the privilged blocks in Derby  several are accessible from application
code, either as in public/protected methods and public classes. The fix for this includes:
> - making packages in the jar files sealed wherever possible
> - making classes and methods with privilged blocks  as private as possible (private or
package for methods, package for classes)
> As Derby moves towards a more client server approach (e.g. see grant/revoke) I started
to perform a security analysis of the priviliged blocks, but realised it would be easier if
I fixed the obvious problems first.
