base_url is not quite an acceptable solution. Consider a site with base_url
set to http://example.com. Now suppose I go to
http://www.example.com/?q=user. I provide my username and password, login
get a cookie, etc. Then I get forwarded to example.com (no www) and I find I
am not logged in. My cookie only works for www.example.com.
Had I gone to www.example.com and followed a link to the login page, I would
have been fine.
Its a small tangent to an already tangential debate, but I just wanted to
clarify that base_url alone does not address the problem.
