provide ability to limit access to clients and targets via white-list

                 Key: CB-80
             Project: Apache Callback
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: weinre
            Reporter: Patrick Mueller
            Assignee: Patrick Mueller

For the weinre server, Marian Ignev created a set of commits to allow client access to be
whitelisted by ip address.  The pull request is [here|].

This is new API, so I'd like to have a discussion about the best way to handle it.

The basic API is a new command-line option(s) which provide the white-list of allowed weinre
clients.  If a client not on the white-list tries to connect, the connection is denied.

Some questions:

1) What's the use case?

2) Should the white-list be ip addresses, ip addresses with globs (9.27.*.*), DNS-able names,
???  Separated by commas seems safe.

3) Should we provide this capability for weinre targets as well?  Seems like yes, or at least
pretend like we might want to in the future.  Why wasn't this added in the first place?

4) For future proofing, if we just do the weinre client then the option name should have "client"
in it's name somewhere.

5) There's an impact to performance and security if we do allow DNS-able names.
