I did start to write a "Security Properties" script but my brain melted at
reverse-engineering the sequence of tokens that leads to each of the 1-5
levels in the specification.  You might have better luck (I can send you
what I have so far which isn't much).  A deterministic set of token
classification rules for security properties would be nice.

I did think about that.  One "devil" is the back end crypto primitives -
the API's for those are all over the map with no consistency.  But if that
can be pushed off to a plug-in class/template, then it may be doable.
