makes sense, even if I admit I prefer to set <base 
href="#{TestPart.public}> so that I can simplify the rest of the html code.

The idea of using it as a guideline is a good one.
Thell devs they could be happy following the common sense and getting 
features for free and all that.
As for the name.. well, it has a name clash with ruby's #public so 
possibly public_root or public_dir could be better ?
