This path comes from the WADispatcher mostly. If you look at 
WADispatcher default, you'll see that under 'seaside' is a WAFileHandler 
registered as 'files'. The file handler looks at all subclasses of 
WAFileLibrary and in the case of files that are external to the image, 
we called it #external.

You can register your own file handler at any entry point you want.

Seaside 2.9 has another mechanism for doing external files built in to 
it that I'm not familiar with yet.
