Okay, I'll spend some more time on getting this right.
On another point, my publishes of Seaside-Platform do the following:
66 - undoes the float change
65 - adds filenameNamed:
64 - adds the float change
All of these are incorrect, is the procedure to publish a new head 67
that would remove filenameNamed: or to rewind back to lr.63?

It's the former. We added WAExternalFileLibrary for Seaside 2.8 in VW
and people found it really useful. This package provides that same(ish)
capability. Given that people found it useful in 2.8, I suspect they'll
continue to find it useful in 2.9.
The package comes from Seaside29LGPL, presumably because it uses Sport.
I'm happy to continue working on it to get its test coverage up.
