In case anyone prefers serving static files from Comanche instead of using
WAFileLibrary, here's an adaptation to Seaside 3 of some old code you may 
find on the net. (Note, I don't have the binding to below.)

    | contentPath dirPath service ma |

    contentPath := 'htdocs'.
    dirPath := FileDirectory default fullNameFor: contentPath.
    service := HttpService on: self port 
        named: 'seaside-', self port greaseString.
    ma := ModuleAssembly core.
    ma alias: '/static' to: [
        ma serverRoot: dirPath.
        ma documentRoot: dirPath.
        ma directoryIndex: 'index.html index.htm'.
        ma serveFiles ].
    ma addPlug: self.
    service plug: ma rootModule.
    ^ service
