Well, these things should be done together. What is needed is a complete set
of functions for getting the objects path, URL sitename and root, both with
and without SiteRoot/VHM. And the virtual functions should work by asking
the SiteRoot/VHM for the information, instead of as today getting the
information from the request, since you may want to find out the virtual
path of objects in another part of the site that has another virtual root
than the object you are calling from does.

For example, like this:
getPhysicalPath()    would return ('', 'site', 'folder', 'foo', 'bar')
getPhysicalURL()    would return '/site/folder/foo/bar/'  <Note the ending
slash>
getPhysicalHost()    would return 'http://real.domain.com' <Note the absence
of an ending slash>
getPhysicalRootObj()    Returns the object that is your root, in this case
the root.

getVirtualPath()    would return ('', 'folder', 'foo', 'bar')
getVirtualURL()    would return '/folder/foo/bar/'  <Note the ending slash>
getVirtualHost()    would return 'http://virtual.domain.com' <Note the
absence of an ending slash>
getVirtualRootObj()    Returns the object that is your root, in this case
the object called /site.
