Hi Andrew,
I do not understand enough the purpose of your patch, but replacing
anonymous_session with system_session in acl.py is not acceptable - recently
I added some tests for denying anonymous access, which I will activate when
I am able to get this feature in master. The tests do work against windows
and are tested :). If you tell me what else I can use to establish an
anonymous connection, then I'll use it instead and the patch would be OK,
otherwise I need this binding.

Also, what is the purpose of
Are you sure it doesn't change the resulting token? We use this session
during provision to make sure the object's descriptors are generated
properly. I'll compile your branch and take a look at the resulting
descriptors to make sure they look as they should...
