You're right, the code I pasted here had an old line with the unbound  
'Context'. I've changed it to use 'denied'.

But my problem still persists. For some reason it seems to be  
compiling ok but no matter what I do to that resource file the changes  
do not apply. When re-compiling, I stop webmachine and "killall heart"  
processes, compile, then restart everything. I must have set something  
incorrectly. I'll keep digging for a bit longer.
