I don't intend to rush out and do things hastily.  I realize that there
should be a preparation process before the right service implementation
is commited.  I originally wrote it as a drop-in replacement of the
current one, but I think that it would be beneficial if all dependencies
on legacy apis could be removed before replacing the current right
service.  Also, we should discuss if any additional requirements should
be added to the new implementation.  For instance, it would be nice if
it was possible to efficiently filter database searches on access rights.

Best Regards,
