XMLRPC Handling by blocks

The Publishflow block makes an important use of MNET RPC calls at block level.

Running the Publishflow architecture needs to add an identified patch called : extending RPC handling to blocks in Moodle 1.9. This handling is implemented in Moodle 2.0.

Tracker reference is : http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-23194

User Mnet Hosts block

In its actual version, the publish flow uses the blocks/user_mnet_hosts (non standard) block as basic policy to allow or not allow course deployment.

(That is, a user need tohave a granted access to a MNET remote host to be able to deploy or publish).

This was used in some projects.

We should provide a further version that avoids this cross dependancy.
