Yep it works well and if it fits your needs then go for it ;)

I serve static assets with Seaside when the files are only accessible 
for a logged in user or when it depends of the state of the sessions.

In other cases, I simply put all my files in a directory next to the 
image and serve them with Zinc/Kom when I develop

At first, that was a way to get around my lack (at the time) of good file synchronizing on Linux - I have long since ported to Pharo a tool that I have use for years so that it runs on Linux.  That makes it easy to move files from one machine to another (basically between desktop and laptop).

IT policies became problematic (or at least scary), and it is simply easier for to run it locally, so I took that plunge.  The system has security features that make little sense now; I might remove them some day.
