JXLoginPanel and User GUI customization

Hi there,
While I was looking at SwingX examples I found the following comment (java doc to be precise) in UserPermissions class file:

This is a singleton that marks the set of permissions for a given logged in user.
It is one of the optional results of a successful login operation. The purpose of this class is to provide a central location and client side bridge to the server side permissions and user roles (see J2EE role based authorization).
This class is used by gui widgets and actions to determine visibility and enabled status and thus a UI can adapt itself to users with a lower set of privileges.

Can anyone give me a hint how exactly can I use this class in my future GUI app?
I didn't see it in use anywhere in the demos :-(
