In past projects, I have always recommended NOT to use Modules simply
because of the side effects (image references, rewrites, etc).  If I
understand what you are suggesting, it seems that your changes would fix all
of the above.

I am +1 for the changes.

+1 - meaning I will also help where I tests...just let me

In reference to


which I also gathered under


The suggestion is to add "contextRelative" to rewrite, as we just did for
img. The usecase being the sharing of common resources between modules.

Since rewrite extends link, I'm tempted to put the contextRelative code into
link. This change would seem to allow direct links between modules.

I don't remember if we discussed that before or not, so wanted to send up a
flare before proceeding.

The one other remaining task is a fixing the pagePattern for img

If we decide to allow contextRelative links, as a refactoring, I may try a
base "PathTag" to encapsulate the contextRelative and pagePattern code.
Link, Rewrite, Img and so forth, can then extend "PathTag".

These two tasks (#18111 and #23127) could conceivably be wrapped up
tomorrow, meaning we could roll 1.2.0 this weekend, if that sounds all
right. :)
