The whole story is the following:

When I started to work on that functional testing suite I directly
referenced the style-sheet from the official script.aculo.us site. You
can still see this in early version on the SqueakSource repository.
Later on I simply swapped that reference to a copy on the
seasidehosting.st server and removed some things that were irrelevant.
The point is now -- again the same problem as already several times
discussed here -- that there are also external image files that I
cannot reference from the style-sheet if I don't have a static
web-server somewhere. Using the extension of Philippe would enable me
to do that using a WAStyleLibrary, though as long as this is not well
tested (I don't blame anyone, this is mainly my own fault) and not
part of the official distribution it simply won't change.
