[rfc][icedtea-web] Temporary permissions

This patch adds new menu items to the new popup menu where PolicyEditor 
can be launched. These new items make it possible to run the current 
applet sandboxed, but with some additional permissions added, without 
having to actually launch PolicyEditor and configure the permissions. 
These permissions are also temporary, as opposed to making a custom 
policy, which persists until you remove the policy.

Right now the permission set defined is just the sum of the permissions 
PolicyEditor can grant via its checkboxes, and the two options added are 
No File Access and No Network Access, which are just that full set minus 
a few. I'd appreciate input on what other temporary permission options 
could be made available.

Anyone have ideas on making the popup menu disappear nicely, rather than 
adding a setVisible call on it to every action listener we have? And I 
suppose it should also be forced to disappear when the dialog is 
disposed as well. What's the best practice for that?
