Okay, then a Filter isn't going to work for Elli, since they are trying
to use a custom Valve for authentication which needs the IP address to
be correct.

On the other hand, they could just modify their custom authentication
Valve to check for X-Forwarded-For /first/, and then callback to
request.getRemoteAddress.

I'm not sure why this is so confusing to everyone :)
