This framework is based on the work done by the aaa4avalon projet at sf.
The guys at aaa4avalon are all a bit busy and they can't find the time
to work on the project anymore. So after talking wih them, we decided it
would be better easier for me to start a new project and hopefully merge
back at some point. I have attached a diagram from the original project
that shows the general idea.

Not XACML or SAML compatible at that point. The initial idea is to have a
of reusable components for AAA and then provide integration layers to
standards. I'm not quite there yet ;-)

That's the holy grail I'm looking for as well.
