You could always set the default path to / in Seaside. We do that by 
default in WebVelocity.

I'm really glad to see Seaside-FileSystem in Seaside 2.9.

Randal: Inefficient? That's a random stretch, if you're using 
Opentalk-HTTP then it's not going to be particularly inefficient and 
it's a wild call to assume that Komanche and Swazoo would be slow 
without trying it out.
