I don't want a workaround every time. And yes I know this is what the documentation said.
This is not a workaround, but what is currently supported. I saw your point of having both things supported - the traditional way and our way, and also expressed an opinion why this is so at the moment :) As usual, the feedback is appreciated and we always keep it in mind (which reminds me about the huge discussion today, here at the office about the 4-eye workflow, but this is another topic).
/images will be different after SP2, but we also going to publish a solution with SP1 on how to use it without any mofications, just configuration change.
