But really, a few lines in a WAFileLibrary method isn't truly an "external"
style sheet and not much of a down side is it? Does it use that much server
resources? Won't the client agent cache the bits? Seems a lot less
cumbersome than all that Apache stuff.

Still the calculated measurements might require a kludge. Perhaps a
calculated class would do the trick if the calculation results in a discrete
and small number of outcomes.
