[Cartoweb-users] using edit_filter with view for edit_table

I'm sorry but the "edit_filter" you probably found in the demoEdit 
project has no effect. It is never taken into account in the edit plugin.
This would be a great enhancement. It was considered at first and 
proposed with this never used parameter. Though, no customer ask for it, 
so it has not been implemented.

I don't have any workaround to do this.
