I was interested in porting the hotlinkprevention plugin to 1.2, and have finished most of the work.
The problem is that with the new resource mechanism in lifetype, the plugin will only block resources that had been added before 1.2.
Is this a worthwhile feature that we want to add? If so, I can try to have the plugin generate/modify the .htaccess file in the gallery that corresponds to a specified blog
If this change were made, the plugin will not need to be a pipeline filter anymore
