> The idea of SubjectRegistrationLoginModule while attractive just can't work.  The idea
behind subject registration is that we want to compute the AccessControlContext for a subject
once and cache it.  That can only be done once the subject is fully populated by all login
modules, so if the ACC is determined by a login module it must be the last one.  However,
if any previous LM is marked REQUISITE no further modules will be processed.  Therefore we
have to register the subjects in some other way.  Just maybe we could "preregister" the subject
but determine the ACC lazily??
