(Thinking out lout.)

Just like ‘guix system vm’ returns a script that runs QEMU with the
right arguments, one could imagine generating a script that copies
dependencies in the right place maybe?

  (define (make-installer assets)
    (gexp->script "copy-assets"
                      (for-each copy-file 'address@hidden)

(This could/should be turned into a package object so that adding it as
an input would drop it in $PATH.)

The developer would have to explicitly run that script to have the files
copied under extlib/.

Alternately one could generate a script that directly runs some http
server with the right parameters so that it finds CSS files, JS files,

Does that make sense?
