Go to the error_log of ahs_dev, remove or #comment out the line with
NotFound.  Then try adding that external method again and see if that
now gives you a proper traceback; hopefully that contains more hints.
When you get a 404 on a page it is not always that page itself that
cannot be found.

Having said that, I *can* imagine that the separate Data.fs files are
the cause for the problem here; if that is the case then I would call
this a bug.
