most calls calls to the old, deprecated methods were replaced within
jackrabit-core. since it is within other people's code i didn't want
to introduce problems and left a couple of calls untouched, where i 
somehow felt uneasy to change to it (maybe over-careful).

it doesn't for me. we decided at day that we want to change
the ac evaluation from id-based to path-based.
