[Framework-Team] Base tag

We recently removed the base tag from the main_template. This was done to  
fix a bug with selecting text in IE [1] and to prevent a reload on links  
to anchor tags. Now we found more and more problems with relative links.  
The most glaring examples are the links to site setup and other stuff on  
the front page of a newly created plone site when used on localhost. A  
proposed solution is to append a slash on the URLs of all folderish  
content and rewriting relative URLs to absolute ones on render. This would  
introduce quite a lot of code though. So we have to decide whether we want  
to fix this, or revert the change and have the base tag back.

My vote is to revert for Plone 3.0 and try to fix it properly in Plone 3.5.
