Indeed, there is no problem if all of your resources use relative links.

However, if they generate absolute links, which many apps do (:-(),

the request object with the 'external' one, so when code builds URLs 
with it, they're externally referenceable.

But VHostMonster reportedly doesn't work with Nevow, yet.
