[kaffe] Changing Thread.stop()

After having discussed the thing on IRC, it has appeared that we should 
drop complete support for Thread.stop(). We propose instead to make it 
throw a SecurityException to tell the application it cannot stop a 
thread. As told in the API, this call is inherently dangerous and may 
leave the VM in an unknown state depending on the implementation.

Any further comments ?
