It influenced things, sure. :)

Also, the big debate we had recently about ClassUtil was related to  
the difficulties Simon was having with ACEGI. That contributed too.  
But it's not just that... the request-wrapping technique is pretty  
elegant, and seems like a good way to make JSPWiki play nicely with  
lots of things.

I admire the design of JAAS quite a bit -- it's modeled after PAM, and  
is really flexible. It's only weird if you think PAM is weird too.  
Yes, Callbacks are a little odd, but not too bad, really, once you get  
the hang of them.

So, is this a 2.8 or 3.0 item?
