So, couldn't we have these prefixes predefined in the intermap mecanism (and 
of course documented...). As regular php datas, they could be helpful also 
to initialize various path/url related config.php parameters like $ScriptUrl 
or $PubDirUrl.
For now, I'm used to have following definitions:

$BaseUrl = "http://{$_SERVER['SERVER_NAME']}:{$_SERVER['SERVER_PORT']}{"
         . preg_replace("'/$'", '', str_replace('\\', '/', 
         . "}";


$ScriptUrl = $BaseUrl .'/'. basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_NAME']);
$PubDirUrl = $BaseUrl .'/pub';
