So you added that to the makefile somehow?  I take it the generated name must be supplied 
to the page's template once it is known.  I'd like to learn more about your system.

So if you make a small change, you have to re-install the whole app?  If the file name 
changes, I can't just use Unison to sync the directory on the production server.

As for reaching for templates in CSS:  Sure, you can break common lines into different 
tags so you only specify a color once:

     #this, #that, div p .theother { color: xxxxx }

but that doesn't help making (say) a border color and a background color the same value.
