Thanks Dylan, plus to those replying off list.

I'm trying to wrap an old static HTML website in Django such that I
don't have to change relative paths to images in subdirectories that
won't really be there anymore.  I'm wanting all URLs from the outside
world to stay the same as well i.e. all the old links will work as is.

http://www.4dsolutions.net/ocn/cp4e.html will now point to
http://www.4dsolutions.net/controlroom/ocn/old/archive/cp4e.html under
the hood, with the later containing <img src="graphics/pix.png"> tags
that need to be statically served from controlroom/media/ocn/graphics
-- that kind of thing.

Kind of a hack maybe, an exercise.  The idea is new content would take
advantage of the framework more, but this is a way of grandfathering
in what's at the site already, basically with no changes.
