No, /static/ is in no way special. To drive the point home here's a bogus 
example that gives you a random file from the ~/.thumbnails/large folder:
def random_thumbnail(path):
    root = os.path.expanduser("~/.thumbnails/large")
    name = random.choice(os.listdir(root))
    return bottle.static_file(name, root=root)

The path is not even taken into account.
