security setup.  One aspect that could probably use quite a bit more  
research is how to integrate with third party security servers.  I  
see 2 levels of integration, one where the security server provides a  
Subject and we deal with authorization based on the principals  
supplied, the other where we delegate the authorization decisions as  
well to the security server.
