Remove Java SecurityManager - at least on the server

SecurityManager is (for good reasons) deprecated for removal in Java 17 (https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/411).

Today the SecurityManager in Domino is a pain in the ass for the normal developer but does not prevent blackhats from doing harm.
SecurityManager could easily be turned off by using your own ClassLoader. Even restricted agents can do that. SecurityManager only creates an illusion of security without creating security.

Other Java based systems did never use Java security on the server. All code running on a server must be trustworthy. That's the only way to go.
