The handling of string and non-string arguments in
HTTPRequest.setVirtualRoot() is indeed inconsistent, but it's obviously
possible to fix the double-root-slash problem by changing the way
VirtualHostMonster calls that method.

Actually, the difference in VirtualHostMonster.__call__ between both
versions is exactly that the new version does there what my patch does
inside HTTPRequest.setVirtualRoot, which is to filter all empty elements
out of the manipulated path before actually setting the virtual root.
Both fixes can be applied at the same time.

I'll even go out on a limb and say that I think my fix is a little more
correct in which it makes the behaviour of setVirtualRoot consistent but
the VHM fix is arguably safer, since it potentially causes less
"interference" :-). Of course, my patch could make setVirtualRoot
consistently wrong :-) but this is something only ZC folks could tell.

Cheers, Leo

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
solitary confinement.
