as of jackrabbit 2.0 the user management can be configured
with the security manager configuration.
with previous versions you have to provide you own implementation
of JackrabbitSecurityManager that exposes your user-manager implementation.

in any case: the access manager and access control evaluation
doesn't have a dependency to the user management at all.
in jackrabbit only the DefaultLoginModule and the 
DefaultPrincipalProvider rely on the user management. that's the
default that was convenient for us...

but note: basically you don't even need to provide any user management
at all if your LoginModule (and ev. PrincipalManager) doesn't rely on
it and you don't need the ability to created users/groups with

hope that helps
