I have done something similar in VW as part of parcel
The idea is to use a subclass of WARequestHandler that is designed to
graphic files. This subclass is named WAPictureServer and is registered
as 'images' in the default dispatcher. As a result, any url in the form
/seaside/images/foo/bar/... is dispatched to this handler via
The corresponding method delegates the request handling to an instance
of WAPictureHandler. It parses the url like that :
AAA is the name of a class
BBB is the name of an annotated method that answers a byte array
.CCC is optional and ignored
Typically, AAA is a subclass of WAStyleLibrary and method BBB is
annotated like this :

The above sample answers a ByteArray built from a constant. It could
also answer a Byte Array read from a file and cached.
With the above in place you can now have things like this in your css:
Not sure if this has been done in Squeak.
