> In the current implementation, a build agent will accept a request from anyone who knows
the url, although it will only send responses to the master url in its config file.
> The agent should only accept requests from its master, and should send an error response
to any other requests.
> On the dev list, Christian suggested using a shared secret as the simplest way for the
agent to be sure the master making the request is who it says it is.  See:  http://www.nabble.com/How-can-an-agent-be-sure-that-a-request-comes-from-its-master--td21546892.html
> Related to CONTINUUM-2041 (Master should be able to detect an incorrect master url in
a build agent's config file)
