Alan - apologies, I made the changes to the security interceptor and 
meant to finish, then got cut off from my computer.

The reason this proved more complex than the other interceptors is that 
it mixes Geronimo code with EJB specific functionality from OpenEJB. 
This needs a careful choice of which interfaces should be defined by 
Geronimo and which by OpenEJB.

My current thinking is that EJBSecurityInterceptor should be moved to 
OpenEJB, leaving the security implementation in Geronimo but placing the 
hook for EJBs in OpenEJB.

The alternative would be to bring interfaces like EJBInvocation, 
EJBInstanceContext and TransactionContext into Geronimo. The downside to 
this though is that some of these are specific to the OpenEJB 
implementation and are not suitably generic.
