This is due to historical reasons i think... Dave or others well trained
phpgroupware veterans could explain more accurately.

I guess that switching to OO design at some moment of phpGroupWare life
needed this redirection for people used to old style urls targetting
directly app instead of root index.php

well i bet this could work provided ../ is included before.

What do core developers think ?

Perhaps this is not the best idea to do that... but that avoids painful
interactions between app level and phpgroupware level for templates.

I this is not correct i'd like to know so that i can change.

it's for perfomance sake if i understood well. i believe that this
reference avoids php to make an implicit duplication the db manager
object.... Dave you'll have to explain more because i'm not sure to be
really correct.

thanks again Christian :)
