Accessors of the form #setSomething: are private by convention, you
should not call them directly unless you exactly know what you are
doing. The base path cannot be changed using #setName:.

I agree that it should be configurable. I filed a bug report:

I find it more appropriate to have the /seaside prefix by default. I
have many web applications running on my development and deployment
machines and this helps a lot to integrate with other applications.
Changing it does not make anything easier, it just makes 5 years of
Seaside blogs and tutorials obsolete.
