Yes this works, but since the css styles are tightly coupled to the
images I want to replace them whenever someone is changing the default
PRPierLibrary. Moreover there might be a couple of Pier instances
(Seaside applications) running trough the same Seaside image using
different or the same style-library.

Imagine a third party developer/designer creating a new look for Pier.
Installing his package will add a/multiple new style-library class(es)
to the image the user can choose from. How can this be solved the
easiest? Of course I could create a new subclass from Application
doing this, but there might be a better solution ...
