Subject Re: git commit: Add docs about the extraFileSystems <preference>

Hi Michael, thanks for pointing that out. I've just made a change to master
to fix the docs. The correct value is "bundle".

I don't think you'll be able to do what you want though. This location is
read-only. What you could do instead is copy your assets to the PERSISTENT
filesystem directory on start-up and then set your start page to there.
