First, aggregate pages (like wholesite.html/pdf) do not properly
reference images and links unless they are in the same directory.

I think project.images-dir is no longer the recommended way to use
images.  (If true, we need change and add an
FAQ about this, or an item in an 'upgrading' doc).  Put your images with
any other 'raw' files.  See
