Ok, item #1. Unfortunately, this is hairier than you'd think:
1. Pages have an entirely different context than stylesheets and
their tags don't exactly snap in (what exactly is the parent of a
stylesheet? the slug?) Basically, I'd have to rebuild these tags
2. I built a whiz-bang dependency observer that tracks relationships
create a better caching mechanism for these files. This caching
was a core goal of this extension. If I go adding page tags, I
risk breaking the caching (some tags, like the ones you've
specified, are really static tags -- the page they're in only
changes if the tag is changed somehow -- but many of the radius
tags are dynamic) Radiant doesn't know which tags are which and,
so, has to assume the worst -- hence Radiant's 5-minute cache.
So, it's not that it isn't doable, it's just that I want to approach
this very cautiously. I figure that someone's eventually going to
come up with a case that will be so necessary as to make me change
this one but man I'm gonna go kicking and screaming ;-)
All true. Perhaps the simple answer is to manage images in some other
Or maybe I'll take a look at writing some tags for SnS to do what I
need. I'll let you know if I give it a go.
Thanks for your swift replies.
