Alternatively, perhaps we could have a glance at the classpath
during startup, perhaps by sharing the code that sysinfo uses,
and only install the default policy if the user appears to
be using the default set of jars.

That is, if we don't see derby.jar, derbynet.jar on the
classpath when starting up Network Server, then we assume that
the user has taken control of the *entire* configuration process,
including the configuration of the security policy, and so we
don't attempt to install a default security policy in that case.

thanks,

bryan
