Hmm . . . have you considered digging up some voting

How do extensions generally deal with images and
stylesheets that need
to be available outside the extensions directory, such as in the skins

Hooks, surely? The skins must have hooks in lots of convenient
places. What do you mean, available outside the extensions directory?
You're only running code inside the extensions directory.
The extension uses images for buttons for rating the pages, and these
buttons have to reside in a directory that is accessible through the
browser, /extensions is not. So, in this case, do extensions generally
just provide a tarball and have the user untar the images into the
