One small concern is the performance impact. We noticed that the 10.2
regression tests take a lot longer than the 10.1 regression tests did,
and one of the explanations for that was that the 10.2 tests run with
the security manager. There will be some people who will prefer to
favor performance over security, and will want a way to be able to run
Derby without a security manager, at least until we can reduce the
performance penalty to a level that is tolerable for them.

thanks,
