I don't really see what you get with this. (What do you mean by "load
a file"?) The rpoble is that it might be confused with an accessor to
the path in the file system from a "URL" on the server: e.g. something
like from "/index.html" to "/my/path/to/docs/index.html", but that's
not what it's about (in this case it would actually return

If you really talk about loading such as [load $file] or 
[source $file], I don't think that people need much help: they either
use absolute paths or they know how to deal with [web::config script]
or similar.

But I might be missing the point ...
