Yes I put it in and took it out since it was not 1.1 compatabile. It can 
be reintroduced by reflection I believe. It was a matter of time that I

It is set up in Main which, IMHO, we should have complete control to 
setup the environment including SecurityManagers. The integration point 
for external tools is Project. At least this is the principle although 
it is a bit rough around the edges :-)
