It was there for a very short period of time, but it doesn't work with
JDK 1.1.

If we wanted to implement the security manager for >= 1.2, it should
be delegating most stuff to a possible present parent SecurityManager
as we cannot assume that the current security manager is null, when
Ant starts - IDE's that integrate Ant directly will most likely
install security managers of their own.
