[Seaside] Re: Confused over the use of WAExternalFileLibrary...

Ok.. In thinking about the big picture here and trying to
help perspective future users of this class.. I'm wondering IF
I were to alter the existing WAExternalFileLibrary to be more
flexible (add support for subdirectories + more obvious config
features), would that annoy other users of this class? I'm not
sure how many people are actually using it for anything --
comments? At a minimum I'll certainly document the current
behavior including where the 'files' directory lives within the
VW tree which was half the problem for me to guess.
