Comment 107 for bug 294712

Okay. I've skimmed the bug and the patch. The duplication of functionality, and the overall approach of adding a temporary exception based on host and not an individual load request, trouble me.

I could probably answer this myself if I read all the details in this bug, but bz understands this stuff far better. Could we create a new loadflag "FORCE_LOAD_FROM_USER" or somesuch, stick it on the channel, and then look for that flag in the contentblocker? We could then skip just the permissionmanager check for that one load. This depends on having the right objects available in the right places, of course.

Is this not feasible?
