I thought this was just spiv's bug, but I just had a look in 
twisted.web.static.File.  When did it get this bad?  Is this my fault? 
:-)  getChild() and render() are both _disasters_, which look like 
they've been hacked on by in excess of 10 people who didn't really 
understand what they're doing.  I can't immediately unravel it enough 
to get a bugfix in, and there are no tests.

I am pulling the emergency brake on the release until static.File has 
tests and they pass.  I would _really_ like it if someone could take 
the time to eliminate PathReferenceAcquisitionContext as well, since 
this is a major part of the confusion and it violates a central 
contract in twisted.web.
