Add a blanket grant for the XPages JVM to the default java.policy file

I just lost two days, just to find out that our RuntimePermission exception (getClassLoader) in Java is caused by a missing setting in a java.policy file, somewhere deep in the Domino tree. In the end, after trying several different settings, the only one that solved the issue was

grant { permission java.security.AllPermission; };

Apparently, the java.policy is overwritten during installation, so I'd like to request, on behalf of all XPages users, that this grant be added to the default java.policy file.

    Agree with the comment dated 28 Jun 10:41, i.e. making it easier for admins to extend permissions for distinct applications (rather than granting full permissions to all applications by default).

    Idea for the implementation: change the Domino Java SecurityManager so that an admin can configure which XPages application get full permissions.

    This is one of XPages developers' eternal banes, where the environment doesn't provide a nuanced SecurityManager, letting everything fall to the default, too-locked-down configuration. This means that XPages apps don't have an option to do even basic things like reflection without deploying code via bundles or altering the policy files.
