There is no such thing as a RawData object, and it is meaningless to
talk about creating them.  A RawData is nothing more and nothing less
that (void*) pointer "cast to" a Java reference.  Java code never does
anything with RawData except pass them around as opaque references.
Only native code can create or dereference RawData, so I don't see
how the security model will make any diference.
