jbot works just fine for those. It doesn't care where your use the
template, it cares about where the original template is.

Because browser resources lack a lot of things: they have no ordering,
no CacheSetup support, no support for TTW-only content, etc. Most of the
time I find skins to be a much better choice than browser resources. And
skins generate sane URLS, none of the ++ ugliness browser resources
rely on.
