Really? Wow. I have never used WEB-INF/classes for anything other than 
properties files. Ok, I'll look into it more carefully.

The issue is that RdbmsPolicy.getPermissions() gets called many times 
for a single checkPermission() invocation, (once per 
CodeSource/PermissionDomain). In the AbstractPageManager case, it is 
called 4-6 instead of perhaps 2-3 times per unique checkPermission() per 
user session. Each time, it invokes PermissionManager.getPermissions() 
which hits the DB, (or look like it does anyway). Worse case, we might 
consider caching in the principal impls to eliminate redundant lookup. 
Ideally, I'd like to get it down to just one access 
RdbmsPolicy.getPermissions(), but I do not know how to use the 
Subject.doAs*() methods to accomplish that yet. DLS?
