It's a false savings to get rid of sslbase if some users must
reconfigure Apache. If that also includes an actual redirection
being sent back to the browser, that's even worse.
It is likely that someone out there has a set of circumstances in
which he needs urlbase & sslbase to be entirely different and for
whom Apache reconfiguration is not feasible.
Pushing things like this off to Apache for the sake of getting rid of
a parameter is discourteous to say the least.
