[Seaside] WAFileLibrary / Resource Path

I'm using Amazon S3 to host my static content, which is easy enough  
to do using methods like WAImageTag>>resourceUrl:. But the content of  
the various file libraries is static too, so it seems like it'd make  
sense to host it on S3 as well.

The problem I'm having is that the URLs of file library content isn't  
relative to the resource base -- so it always looks for /seaside/ 
files/SULibrary/effects.js, where I'd really prefer something like:




What would be the best way to refactor the code to accomplish this?  
If nobody's interested in this sort of feature, then I guess I can  
hack it however I want. But if other people are interested, I'd like  
to know how to make it as useful as possible.

It seems like this behavior should be configurable. Should I just  
make it use the resource base URL, or keep a separate base URL for
