I do understand the concern and we will continue to monitor, but it causes a lot of issues and isn't as simple as adding a setting or we would just do that. Doing https everywhere (and we may eventually move to just https ourselves) allows us to not maintain two seperate caches, which simplifies a lot of subsystems and allows us to do a lot more caching. This in turn speeds up the site a ton for people.

Can you add a rewrite plugin that auto changes the URLs?
