Checking for a class doesn't seem to be a good idea I think we should 
check for an interface instead.

Using the MultipartFilter is optional so I don't think that the blocks 
fw should assume that it is used and that we have a 
MultipartHttpServletRequest as request.

Maybe we instead could make the DispatcherServlet less intrusive on the 
request object by modifying the getServletPath() and getPathInfo() on 
the incomming request object by a dynamic proxy instead of wrapping it 
with a request wrapper.
