That solution seems to have  problems with redirects that Catalyst
generates to other Catalyst pages. for example, the Authentication
tutorial redirects privileged URLs to the login page if the user is
not already logged in. That causes the approach above to redirect

With help from omega on #catalyst, I described a cleaner solution at
(search for "Serving static files"). It's also shorter and doesn't
rely on the undocumented SCRIPT_NAME variable.
