Perfect.  Thanks!

You can do that today!  


Then your widget can be defined to load from resources.  

public class MyHeader extends Widget {  
public String getScript(RestRequest req) throws Exception {  
return loadScript("MyHeader.js");  
public String getStyle(RestRequest req) throws Exception {  
return loadStyle("MyHeader.css");  
public String getHtml(RestRequest req) throws Exception {  
return loadHtml("MyHeader.html");  

The loadX() methods strips off comments (e.g. apache license headers) from  
the files for you.  

You can embed any of the various other variables inside the files as well  
(e.g. $L{}, $R{}, etc....) since the $W variables are recursively resolved  
(just like any other variable).
