Encrypting Webhook URLs

In order to prevent abuse of a webhook URL (in my case to gitter.im) I would like to encrypt the URL of a webhook notification:

  - provider: Webhook
      secure: c4xwvfA2YpTyASkpasFt2vA6q4pCxCMoWhfX9/JwBxp6rub4dphj6smGxy+5rnsHcvVU6/FvzVHQo4hoxL5gOA==
    on_build_success: false
    on_build_failure: true
    on_build_status_changed: true

This is currently not accepted as a valid appveyor.yml:

"url" must be a string. (Line: 37, Column: 7)

Is there a workaround and/or might this change make it into the platform at some point?

    Just checked if this issue might have silently been fixed, but unfortunately it hasn't been. Any chance this supposedly simple but useful enhancement will make it into AppVeyor?

    Duplicate report: http://help.appveyor.com/discussions/problems/5478-how-to-secure-a-webhook-url

    Not that it's a solution, but a workaround would be to configure Gitter in the interface.

    I would still like to see the ability to provide a secure url value in the YAML though!
