I'm doing capability security for a MOO project in Oz, myself.

It's a wicked-cool language.  It doesn't have the crypto that E
does, yet, but it's got a lot of other things that are really,
really nice, like extremely light-weight threads (I've run test
programs that fork 10M threads without any visible slowdown on my
machine).

So far, it looks like there's going to be about 300 lines of ex-db
code, because so many of the things I want to do are trivial in the
language.  I'm patterning after CoolMUD, which I'm the maintainer
for.
