I'm not too keen on another branch.  The approach that I'd like to
take is to understand better understand the "point cut"s needed to
plug JACC in.  An abstract API for that can then be added to the
normal development branch of Jetty, with the current security implementation
being the main one.   The Jetty/Gerenimo/JACC implementation probably would
then be in geronimo CVS rather than Jetty CVS.

But this depends on me getting my head around the integration points JACC.
Perhaps if Alan posts his patches to me then I'll learn by code rather than
by spec?
