[Seaside] Authentication task and https

Are there any restrictions on how or on which classes to set the
protocol option?  So far, I have used #registerAsApplication: and then
set preferences.  But unless I am missing something, I can't simply
browse for implementers of #serverProtocol:.  Is there a way to set a
protocol for something that does not deserve the label of "application"
(which I read as entry point to Seaside)?  As an example, suppose I have
a task to get a file name, ask for some text, perhaps present a form to
edit it, and then #answer: a result of the interaction; how would I go
about setting its server protocol without creating an entry point?

Sounds likely... the #serverXXX settings control the URLs that are
generated by Seaside. If your application is running behind something
like apache that makes the address different than what Seaside would
expect, you should be setting those options.
