Just want to state that my comment to this issue would not cause me to
vote -1 for the issue or the release :)

But looking at how DERBY-2436 is also open (misuse of IMPORT to read
aunauthorized data); I guess i feel that some more general way of
limiting *which* files are read/written by export/import is the way to
go, even if it risks causing some incompatibility.
