Subject Re: Link Display Logic

I'll generally expose permission info through an action (or whatever model
makes it to the page) and use a custom tag to really clarify and narrow the
purpose of that particular JSP/etc. logic.

Other than that, though, not sure what else I'd really do, if I'm trying to
stay within the S2 framework. Spring Security is another option.
