[Catalyst] Serving server-dependent static content

Good afternoon - I am working on a Catalyst application that serves dynamic
website content for multiple sites, and I've run into some difficulty about
static content.  Each website has unique static content (images, css, rss)
and I am trying to serve that static content from the site's unique
directory.  I have found lots of documentation on how to serve all static
content from a single directory, but not much on a servername-dependent
directory.  For example:
Request:  http://www.timjohnson.com/css/global.css
Should be served with:  /var/www/html/sites/timjohnson.com/css/global.css
I came close to making this happen just using the Alias directive in
httpd.conf, but I couldn't get that to accept a variable, %{SERVER_NAME}, in
it.  If someone has a solution from the Apache side, that's fine but I
suspect that it might be easier to do this with
Catalyst::Plugin::Static::Simple, though I again have not figured out how to
tell it to use a variable name when it creates the path the request is
supposed to be mapped to.  I am sending this to the Catalyst list because I
suspect it might be something other people have faced before using Catalyst.
My setup is a recent version of Catalyst running on Apache 2.2 with
mod_perl.  Any suggestions would be quite welcome - thank you very much.
