    layer on top of JDBC.

o - A low level access control system based on a  user/group/capability
    model, allowing restrictions to be placed on tables, rows and fields.

o - Cookie-based or HTTP-based login provoked automatically by access
    control failure.

o - Rapid templating mechanism, using "templets" (sub-templates) for
    rendering interface elements (eg HTML input boxes, dropdowns), and providing
