Great work.  I was looking into this yesterday.   I'm glad you beat me
to it. :-)

To follow up on Tomas' comment - Why not make the override_base_uri /
override_base_uri_secure include the schema?  So if you want the URI's
to include https:// even if the request is coming in not-secure, you
can do that.

Without this functionality it would be hard to do SSL accelerators and
such properly.

I'd also love a way to callback from uri_for - but that's another
story and issue altogether.
