The Application class unfortunately insists that every
requested resource must be a real filesystem resource,
but this limitation doesn't let servlet factories work
out whether they can handle such requests anyway.

For example, one might want to serve "default.py" when
any non-existent .py resource is requested within a
given context and to implement this mechanism in a
servlet factory. These non-existent resources could be
called "virtual" resources and are reminiscent of
mod_python's handler semantics.

This patch tentatively removes the "real resource"
limitation in the 0.8 release version of Application.

    This does not apply any more. The servlet cache has been
    refactored completely after 0.8.1. So closing the issue.
