Make JDBCRealm not a final class

The JDBCRealm is a cool feature and I have got it working alright. But I need to add an extra
feature like storing the passwords encrypted in the database and not in clear text. Therefore
I only need to override the authenticate method in the JDBCRealm class and add the encryption
algorithm. But since the class is final I'm not allowed to do this and must therefore write
a whole new class. If the Tomcat project is interested in the encryption realm I'm willing
to submit/donate the code.
