[Seaside] Avi, why did the semantics for #urlForAction: change?

As far as I remember the reason for this change was that Seaside
redirects have always been produced "invalid" responses as these were
not fully qualified URLs like the standard expects. That's why this
was fixed.

If you use Apache 2 you can tell "ProxyPreserveHosts On" and then
Seaside will automatically figure out the correct base-path. Apache is
pretty standard nowadays.

As an alternative you can setup different application entry points
that statically generate different URLs and configure Stunnel to proxy
to those entry points depending on the type of session.

Why don't you just do everything over https? That would make your life
much easier.

One goal of Seaside 2.7 is to get URL objects everywhere, no more string.

Just some thoughts,
