Ok, so I can see this.

but this makes no sense to me.  Why would you want to unite JCE with
general security?  There is no close coupling afaict.

How about
 - general security
 - crypto
 - x-net
 - jaas

there may be good reason to want to replace crypto independently of
general security.  Am I missing something?
