I have read many topics regarding link proxy feature that XF recently implemented, I realized that its much likely related to security. Correct me if I'm wrong. I couldn't find any beter explanation regarding it and I have read some guys saying "if you don't know what is it, you don't need it". I personally don't agree with it since it can be something helpful.
My question is: above all the common objectives of this feature, is that possible to handle the redirections with a addon, for example?
Being a bit more detailed on what I'm saying, suppous Comprehensive URL Parser addon from @SneakyDave. This addon apply some rules in the URL whenever its posted by the user. My question is that if this proxy feature could help a similar addon to build some URL rules after its clicked.
I have some requirements of a custom addon that I might need furtherly that would need and API connection to generate a custom link and it can't be prevented since the API generates a hash on the URL related to that specific link for that moment, with this, the API would respond a XML and one of those fields would be a new generated URL and then the user would be reditected to that new address.
I don't know if I am clear enough. Let me know if there is something else to be explained.
