I would recommend if you need to set base to something specific, that 
you just do this in your App's begin() method:

$c->req->base( 'http://whatever/' );

I don't think running the frontend on another port will make a 
difference as the code only checks the address.  HTTPS though, good 
point.  That will need to be handled as well.
