I'm curious what the several ways are that you tried, and which of them 
were unreliable.

Personally, if I had a lot of static files and I wanted them served 
fast, I would let Apache do it, and graft my Seaside application into 
Apache's URL space using mod_proxy.

On the other hand, if I had only a few static files and wanted the 
simplest deployment package, I would suck them into the image (maybe 
even managing them as Smalltalk source by sticking them into a string 
literal somewhere), and use the #anchorWithDocument: methods.
