Well, sure this will work, but on the other hand you lose the ability to
use an image within a plugin. For example I have the plugin MyPlugin and
want to use an image for the plugin. So I will not put it in the general
share/html/NoAuth/images because this makes a mess when exporting this
plugin or updating RT since the plugin is not a encapsulated anymore and
the image would be outside of the "protected" area of the plugin.

What is needed is a smart way to determine whether a requested file is
an image and so let it pass without processing or whether it's another
type of file - so process it.

Is there such a way?
Or is there a way to do this with apache? Maybe with the rewrite mod?
Or how can I configure Mason so that the autohandler will be touched
first, and any other file second? I don't have any experience with
Mason. :(

Thanks for your thoughts and help.
