Well, I can understand you having a personal preference to always have
/seaside in the URL, but it appears that it would be courteous to support the
requests of some of your customer base (me included) to be able to set
it to anything else we choose as well, empty if needed.

As a specific data point, I have a legacy application that requires a
particular URL, but has low enough traffic that I don't want the added
complexity of an Apache front proxy.  This is the perfect case for me to set
the /seaside prefix to the legacy app's prefix (in this case, empty), and use
it as is.  I was planning on using setName: for that, because it wasn't in the
'private' category, and it works. :)
