I've looked up the references below and done several searches of
filepermissions. It seems to me that for jythonc to have any use in
development of "practical" products, programs have to be able to
access local files easily. If not, then this, in my opinion, is going
to be a MAJOR issue for jython!! I love the syntax and ease of
programming in python, but if it cannot be used for useful programs,
why bother?! BTW, how does java handle this? Is the same problem there
