I am fixing a bug. No more, no less.

If and when file: gets implemented, this is not to remain anymore.

But having multiple dirs or one dir for content has nothing to do with 
resource-exists versus file: .

I can keep all files in a single dir and reference them via file: or 
implicitly via resource-exists.
Or I can have separated dirs and use file: or implicit handling to get 
the file.

Please don't mix issues.

I've fixed a bug. The "file:" issue is over for me, you know I don't 
care anymore discussing it, too much heat for nothing.

I hope I can continue fixing bugs though without having to pass through 
this every single time.

Thank you.
