Welcome to sourcemaps :-P

In my sourcemap proposal, this is exactly what happens. The sourcemap 
tells me the real place of the file when I request a virtual place, by 
also using resource exists. I'll commit it as soon as it's finished 
(still working on the syntax as the current one still sucks).
