> I have created a new custom authenticator that subclasses AbstractAuthenticator, but
I have discovered that it must belong in the same package as org.apache.directory.server.core.authn.LdapPrincipal,
because it creates a new instance of LdapPrincipal, but the constructor of LdapPrincipal only
has package-level access.  This itself isn't a huge deal, but the custom authenticator must
also be loaded by the same class loader that loads LdapPrincipal, or else it is not considered
to belong to the same package (even though it shares the package name).  This causes some
deployment issues on our J2EE server.  This can also be worked around, but it's kind of a
pain.  If one of the features of ApacheDS is custom authenticators, then I think this issue
should be resolved in some fashion such that custom authenticators can reside in a different
package.
