I've wondered about this myself. Is reading the string out of the
database faster than getting the current domain/path via PHP? I
can't see any reason for this to be in the database - I'm sure there
was a decision behind it, but I'm curious.
Wouldn't it be easier to set a constant from the index.php file?
