Glad to hear this!

I'll look into fixing that then. It's easy to get commit access to
wicketstuff if you want to contribute any improvements.

I looked into WASP briefly as well and came to the same conclusion. Way too
complex. I also looked at spring security, but it didn't seem as flexible.
Shiro (JSecurity at the time) really stood out as a much simpler and more
capable solution.

I completely agree. I hope that with a shiro release in maven, that more
wicket developers will find it in wicketstuff. Personally, I feel that shiro
should be considered as the default security provider for wicket in general,
but I'm not sure the wicket commiters would agree. There is a conversation
about that on the wicket list.

Good luck!
