Jetspeed security is pluggable so you can implement your own security based
on the provided interfaces. Currently, Jetspeed ships with two security
implementations: Turbine and LDAP. You can use thess as an example to
implement your own JAAS-based security. I'm sure a lot of people on this
list would be very interested in a JAAS implementation ;)
