There's always a range from totally broken to completely bug-free, and
I don't see us ever getting to either end of that range.

The basic requirement IMHO for having the code in trunk is that at
some point in the next 3-4 months the trunk should be in a state that
introduces no major regressions to anyone using Jackrabbit 1.4.
Essentially, this feature should not break things for someone who
isn't using access control.

Beyond that I think we just need to evaluate the current state of the
feature by the time of the next release. If it's already production
ready, we can introduce it as a stable new feature. Otherwise we can
mark it as a beta or technology preview, to be used by people who are
ready for things to change in the next release.
