John has a good point that we aren't ready to implement this into the 
code, but we can still list it as a detection point in the wiki.  Our 
AppSensor information project provides someone with all the knowledge to 
roll their own AppSensor. The AppSensor code that we are developing is 
one implementation in Java with ESAPI integration. So although we may 
not support this detection point in our code, its still a good idea for 
someone else to consider.
