[cap-talk] state of art in capabilities

Say I wanted to use a web key capability to protect a collection of a  
single type of object (a capability per collection), and provide basic  
Create, Read, and Delete operations on the collection in a web user  
interface.  I want anonymity, sharing, revocation.  What is the state  
of the art?  What's the best approach?  I'm running Mac OS X on Intel.

I have tried Swing with a local database, and GWT with no back-end.   
What front-ends integrate with the best back-ends?  I'm probably going  
to try Waterken next, but I'm unsure of how to provide a GUI for it  
(and I'm a GUI programmer)
