[Twisted-Python] HTTP 302 instead of just delivering the content.

Yes. So?

the same as root.addHost() in the twisted VHostMonster.

Hm.. I've tried that but didn't manage to get twisted to correctly 
answer HTTP requests anymore. Thus I've been googling and figured out, 
that Nevow didn't work well with the VHostMonster and thus provides it's 

Anyway, the code in the docu is:

root = vhost.NameVirtualHost()
root.addHost(vhostName, reverseProxy)
site = server.Site(root)
application = service.Application('web-proxy')
sc = service.IServiceCollection(application)
i = internet.TCPServer(80, site)

Now, I don't have a reverseProxy, but a NevowSite(). Unfortunately 
that's a 'Site' and not a 'Resource' (whatever the exact difference is).

Where does twisted need to generate a URL? I'm even mostly using 
relative links, AFAICR...
