Yep. You're absolutely right. That one was overlooked, as was the javadoc
reference in SecurityProviderLoader.

The only other documentation reference that I found where the package name was
still org.owasp.esapi.reference was in esapi4java-core-2.0-install.doc. Is
that the documentation that you were referring to where it was wrong?

I have just committed these changes so they will be available in the next
ESAPI 2.0 release, or from SVN, if you build from there.

Jim: Did you want a Google issue created for this as well, or is it sufficient
     to just fix it like I did? (Just being lazy!)
