Hi Jason

The existing verify(PublicKey key, String sigProvider) method caches the 
result and returns it if the same key and sigProvider is used. Is it 
possible to do the same in your new method?

Also, the new method is very similar to the old one. I have no good idea 
how to reuse the old code but if you find a way that would be very nice.

As for the CCC, is it really necessary to add these lines?

   *                                           Note that the specified
   * Provider object does not have to be registered in the provider list.
   * <p> This method was added to version 1.8 of the Java Platform
   * Standard Edition. In order to maintain backwards compatibility with
   * existing service providers, this method cannot be <code>abstract</code>
   * and by default throws an <code>UnsupportedOperationException</code>.
