CTCJava 2.0 Beta 2 - update

Testing in advance of Beta 3 has shown that there are some problems with managing keyrings in key generation. This includes some problems with the handle to the JVM environment through multiple levels of calls Java->native->Java->native...; and failing to pick up the keyring files once they have been updated. This will take more than simple refactoring or easy Swing UI tweaks.

If the bug turns out to be made more difficult to resolve because of the back and forth calling, I may end up pulling more of the OpenPGP functionality into the Java layer. I will certainly be making it more C++ with a C interface where that simplifies matters for me.
