Ahhh, I didn't think of using scheme. It turns out that SitemapServlet (thus sitemap machinery)
this one single method to recognize that request is coming from ssf and not from browser.

Still this looks a little bit dangerous so I would like to see it applied along with something

 if (we allow request by recognizing "servlet" scheme)
   logger.warn("Following request has been allowed to access internal-only pipeline by using
fully secure method:" + request);

Of course message should little bit more relevant that this is only potential security whole
is rather hard to use.

Great, as soon as you provide a good integration test I'm happy to commit it.

I guess so but it's really Reinhard that is an expert in this area.

BTW. Are you going to connect blocks deployed to different machines using SSF? This is something
I've been thinking for a while.
