Subject Re: Security module layout
Date Fri, 24 Feb 2006 17:23:12 GMT

Redrawing the proposed layout as it didn't render quite correctly for me 
when I read over the sent note (sigh).


   <SECURITY ROOT>

         |   |
         |   +---main

         |   |   |   +---linux.IA32
         |   |   |   |
         |   |   |   \---win.IA32

         |   |   +---native

         +---META-INF
