Another rule for request_is_secure

Hey, apparently there is absolutely no standard for firewalls that mess with ssl. Our hosting provider's firewall sets HTTP_X_SSL_REQUEST.

Any chance we could get this rule added into the request_is_secure function in satchmo_utils/init.py? {{{

#!python

if 'HTTP_X_SSL_REQUEST' in request.META: return request.META['HTTP_X_SSL_REQUEST'] == '1'

}}}

There are already a couple other rules there, so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Thanks, Alex

    That is a great idea Simon. That is definitely better than letting that module become a dumping ground for all of the weird SSL rules the firewall people have come up with.

    Marking this as resolved.
