Bug Description

As tracked in, Moodle 2.0 does not clean output HTML when exporting content to a remote portfolio. From Moodle point of view, the portfolio system is responsible for the input sanitization regardless the source. Please make sure that you handle the data exported from Moodle correctly - it may contain malicious content, nasty Javascript etc.

We do clean_html in html blocktype, aren't we? So, there should be no sanity problems when exporting from Moodle. Though, I have added a virus check for imported files (see b64be4db).
