I don't think this solution would work well for static sites as you've
correctly pointed out.  In this working example, I read in the same
configuration file that the process generates to get the current folder
name.  Then, this value is used when I generate the links to images.


<img src="/<%= hotlinking_current %>/myimage.jpg" />

Clear as mud?
