Why not also a jetty assembly?  Unless there are really significant  
problems I'd be in favor of waiting a couple days and getting both  
platforms out at the same time.

I have a significant security refactoring I've been working on that I  
would like to get into the next 2.0 official whatever (milestone,  
snapshot, release...) since it is not backwards compatible.  It  
affects how default subjects and run-as subjects are constructed and  
will finish the JACC plugability work.  I'll try to get something out  
today describing how it works in more detail.
