> Currently we are wrapping all principals returned from a "user" login module, and no
one really knows whether each login module gets its own Subject or the Subject is shared.
 We need to provide a flag in LoginModuleUse that selects either:
> -- principals are wrapped and login module gets a new Subject
> -- principals are not wrapped and login module gets a shared Subject.
> The first is likely to be used for normal login modules that actually verify something
based on user input, the second for things like auditing or mapping credentials for connectors
where access to principals generated by other login modules is required.
