Have a look at the subclasses of WAFileLibrary. This has nothing to do
with the resource-base url.

This only works if you are using an external web server like Apache.
The resource-base url tells Seaside the absolute base directory where
these resources (e.g. http://something.com/resources) can be found.
When you then use #resourceUrl: instead of #url: Seaside will
automatically generate the appropriate path.
