Cool beans! I was just going to ping you guys this week again. I'll
start using it Monday.
IMO, you'll still need a high level interface that uses User, Role,
Group, Grant, etc... as Wildfly will need a defined interface for
dealing with this stuff so it can provide security to its various Java
EE and other components.

We're still working on some other important aspects, but they are not a blocking to start using this new version.
> The most visible change for who is already using the IDM is that all getAgent, getUser, getRole, grantRole, etc, methods were removed from the IdentityManager interface and moved to the org.picketlink.idm.model.sample.SampleModel class. We have also introduced a specific interface for relationship management, the org.picketlink.idm.RelationshipManager.
