Authorization Service: hardcode simple authorization rules for safty

         Key: DIREVE-68
     Project: Directory Eve
        Type: Task
  Components: interceptors  
    Reporter: Alex Karasulu
 Assigned to: Alex Karasulu 

We need to prevent everyone except the admin user from accessing the admin user's entry. 
It should not be returned on searches and lookup's should fail if these operations are not
being conducted by the admin.  This will prevent other users from being able to read the admin's
entry or alter it.  In general I'm not in favor of hard coding rules but this is one that
is almost universally valid and is ok to hardcode.  After all this can be changed later as
dynamic authorization policy mechanisms are put into place.  Also modifyRdn and delete operations
will not be allowed!

Furthermore we can extend this to regular users where only those that own their entry under
ou=users,ou=system can read, or modify their entry.  No modifyRdn, or delete operations are
allowed on these entries by any user except the admin user.  The admin user can do anything
it wants to do.  Other users besides the creator/owner cannot read the userPassword field.

This is basically a new interceptor implementation.
