There is an alternative to using uri_for in every link:

<base href="[% c.request.base %]">


<a href="user"></a>

This method will work whether your deployment is at the base of the
domain, or a subdirectory.

Thanks for remembering about <base>. I think that this technique won't work 
if the links start with "/" though, like:

<a href="/user"></a>

So, it is better to create the links using uri_for() from the beginning or 
use only relative links...
