ZnZincStaticServerAdaptor is really a hack as the #handleRequest: code clearly shows. I would suggest you make your own subclass that does what you want.

I have never used ZnZincStaticServerAdaptor in practice. Right now I am very happy using standard Seaside FileLibraries during development and moving them to the filesystem during deploy (using, well, #deployFiles), with nginx in front handling them statically.

Having a massive amount of static resources could be a counter indication.
