Lack of interest XenForo_FileOutput extendability (for X-Accel-Redirect/X-SendFile)


Well-known member
XenForo_FileOutput doesn't go via the dynamic class resolution.

This means adding support for;

Requires a code edit, or a custom autoloader.

These are advanced features, which allow php to-do authentication and then delegate to the webserver to actually serve the file.

Would I don't expect XF to implement all those features in core, it would be nice to be able to implement them via an addon simply by hooking the XenForo_FileOutput class by event listeners in the usual way.
