the extension is sometimes cruical, since windows uses it to offer a program
that can open it. Can structure names end in .doc?

it would be ideal if the same image could be used in both scenarios. In one
file would be served from the pier image, for instance when designer is
working on his local copy based on one-click image. In other scenario web
proxy would intercept file requst by recognizing url patttern, and serve the
file it self.
For second scenario to work, there are two important conditions:
- all structures that need to be served as files need to have some
recognizable url like /seaside/pier/content-files/*
- pier should also write uploaded files in equvalent file system directory
structure so nginx or apache could serve it of from there.
Maybe there are even more possible dimensions. Anybody has an idea how

I think I have managed to add some more complications with my wishes ;)
