If you want to serve your static files with apache, you'll want to  
look into the ReverseProxy directive. Then you can just define Alias  
directives that override your various asset URLs.

I like having my Twisted web app setup so it can serve static files,  
using the same URLs I have aliased in Apache. Then I can omit Apache  
for development, but use it for production without changing any paths.
