The same effect could be obtained by filling the 'whitelist' on
the fly with a single host: the one from which the toplevel movie
is loaded.

This reminds me of a current problem in gnash... We feed the
standalon player with the movie from stdin, so whitelist/blacklist
has NO effect on top-level movie. I didn't verify this but I suppose
no load of toplevel movie will currently be blocked. Should test
this and add support for this (using the url passed with -u might
be a quick hack).
