[Mailman-Developers] GetScriptURL and "absolute=1"

I still find that mailman's administrative interface behaves incorrectly on HTTPDs running on non-standard ports.  It simply discards the port information out of the URL, despite DEFAULT_URL* settings.

On some pages, the URL to the FORM ACTION is relative (eg, the "General Options" form) while others, it is absolute (eg, the "Membership list").

Looking around the source, I've found lines like this

adminurl = mlist.GetScriptURL('admin', absolute=1)

Changing the value of ABSOLUTE to 0 solved the problem, and I've found it pretty harmless.  Any specific reason for the ABSOLUTE=1 setting?  If this is okay, I can provide a patch (although there are very few lines that need changing).
