- Always Redirect: Seaside will, by default, issue a redirect after  
every request (so there's a 302 for every 200).  Any side effects  
come before the redirect is issued, which means that reloading or  
using the back button will always be side effect free.  If you want  
to sacrifice this safety/convenience for better latency, you can turn  
Always Redirect off.
- Server Port/Protocol: these are intended for the situation where  
you have Seaside behind a forwarder or SSL wrapper.  They let it  
generate the right absolute URLs.  In some cases it can figure these  
out itself from the Host header and they're unnecessary.
