Or against PhoneME? The problem with using such internal classes for
your security checks is that you cannot be sure about the actual
security domain they will run in. What is it really that the PhoneME
code does? Doesn't it come with its own core class library? Are you
trying to replace parts of that? Really the PhoneME code should come
with its own convenience class to do this.

Cheers,

Mark
