[opencms-dev] access to CmsObject

Yes, it is a servlet filter.
I tried to contribute, but I never received an answer from the opencms
people to commit the change.
The filter does the same opencms does at every request, it takes the
CmsObject for the current logged in user and put it in the request, so, it
could be accessible for a servlet other than the opencms servlet.
For example, you could do that with the Spring MVC servlet, then, you will
have access to the CmsObject from the Spring MVC servlet

The OpenCMS object instance depends on the logged in user, so, you can't
have just one instance, you will have potentially one instance per user.
