This has resulted in some serious chicken and egg type problems when building out the dao
and factory objects in terms of dependencies.  We need to do away with it.  

The problem resulted here and not in the other providers because we extracted the RoleDAO
interface from the RoleFactory incorrectly.  The factory never needed a list() or listNames()
where all the roles in the database were listed.  We included this and created the problem
where no Application instance was available.  

The best way to resolve this issue would be to do away with the following methods on the RoleDAO

o list()
o list(String)
o listNames()
o listNames(String)

And add the following methods instead:

o list(Application)
o listNames(String)

This will allow us to revert back to the use of the ThreadLocal mechanism and simplify the
code somewhat not to mention rid our selves of this cyclic dependency issue.
