It should be possible to do this, but currently I don't have much time
to work on websec and am mostly integrating patches. I'd suggest filing
the feature request in the savannah tracker and when I'll have time to
work on websec I'll be looking there for tasks to do. You can find the
tracker at http://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?group=websec
