A possible solution might be, to enforce code download to use TLS and 
verify if the othersides ceritificate matches the downloaders trustlist. 
We can extends this by enforcing the downloaded jars/classes to be 
signed with a similar certificate.

A "once bitten measure" could be, if a server violates this rule, it 
will automatically be taken of the trustlist.
