[wildfly-dev] Security manager and RuntimePermission

There are several people (myself included) who have been using 
RuntimePermission as an easy way to define simple permissions for 
various purposes.  However, by spec [1] the possible values of 
RuntimePermission are limited to a specific set defined by the JDK itself.

Therefore our extensive usage of this permission in WildFly [2] and 
elsewhere needs to be revisited, and replaced with more specifically 
applicable permission types.  I've created WFLY-3902 [3] to cover the 
main portion of this work, however, non-core project members should also 
perform this same examination to fix this issue in their projects.
