+Summary: Relative client paths
+MS.NET System.Web (1.1) always generates relative client paths
+if possible, i.e. if a certain S.W.UI.Image.ImageUrl is relative,
+its img src attribute will be emitted relative to TemplateSourceDirectory.
+Mono consistently uses Control.ResolveUrl, which by design constructs
+absolute urls (urls starting with the app virtual path).
+At the first moment this doesn't sound like a bug, but there is at
+least a use case which renders Mono's behaviour as a bug:
+Paths can be rewritten either using a handler or by hooking
+application's BeginRequest. The runtime is informed about
+the rewrite with Context.RewritePath.
+Here a sample implementing subsessions tunneled over an ASP.NET
+gets rewritten to
+Context["subsessionid"] = subsessionid;
+After the rewrite, the browser is still resolving relative
+urls relative to /app/subsessionid/path/to/, which
+carries the subsessionid with them.
+However, since Mono's urls are absolute, the subsessionid
+is lost on subsequent requests.
+The same code works under MS.NET because the urls are relative.
+Would you guys except a patch that changes Mono's behaviour regarding
+the url generation? I thought about implementing Control.ResolveClientUrl
+#if NET_2_0
+        public
+        internal
+        string ResolveClientUrl (string relativeUrl);
+and replacing the affected ResolveUrl calls of S.W.UI.* with
