Ok, I understand that might be the case. But it’s really not an option to use the HTTP in my view, since it is then not possible to use your theme at all on a site that is secured with SSL (https). Considering that escorting is a little sensitive, I am sure most of your clients will want to run this theme under HTTPS. If that is the case, you *have* to change these references – otherwise the theme becomes useless.
Would you please reconsider, and make sure to change this?
