[Bf-committers] Web 3D plug-ing

I want to be extremely clear on this: the Blender Foundation cannot  
officially support the (current) webplugin. There are not only severe  
security issues with such a product, but it also should really be  
offered using a verification key (like verisign) and being backupped by  
a company to deliver clients/users sufficient support.

A product like this is an excellent opportunity for a third party to  
pickup as a business.
