I've checked out the sources from CVS, but I can't get them to build 
without javax.crypto, which is not in kaffe yet (unknown legality of 
distributing strong crypto from US, etc., we'll let GNU Classpath 
project figure it out, and follow in their step ;).

Merged in, works partially. Check out the source from CVS HEAD, that 
should give you a starting point for changes. Since our java.security is 
not (fully) merged with Classpath, some problems may be due to that. 
Please post to the mailing list when you need things merged in from GNU 
Classpath (or ask Jim for a CVS account ;).

Run programs with kaffe -Dpolicy.provider=gnu.java.security.PolicyFile 
to try your PolicyFile code out.
