Is it safe to assume that using the above rewrite rules won't get you 
past a setup where the Seaside webserver
(aka squeak) is hidden behind a firewall and not directly accessible to 
the public, and that is when you'd use a
reverse proxy setup which does the extra steps to be the go-between the 
user's browser session and the "other"
web server (in this case squeak's).. I believe that's ultimately the 
decision maker here (and perhaps slightly off topic)
on whether to use a reverse proxy or just rewriting rules like those 
above.  Please correct me if I'm wrong.. In the meantime
I'll continue looking for ways to fix my reverse proxy setup so it works 
for all links..
