The Use Of URLs Within Sakai

There is some work in progress in the portal that impacts this and I  
am expecting that we *may* mount the portal as the Root webapp in the  
future, and allow one or more of the portal handler to break free of  
the static functional url space mapping and focusing much more on  



as a site url.

Test done so far indicate this will work and still allow existing  
urls to operate as before.
