[wp-hackers] CDN Integration?

I've actually just completed the work on a (mostly generic) plugin for (Limelight) CDN integration and applied it to the theme of the site we are building. Unfortunately the NextGen Gallery which we are using has several hard-coded references to get_option('site_url') which means I have to modify his plug in order to use it and I want to avoid modifying other's code if possible. This is an example of why it would be nice to have a better vetted image management api, but I digress.
It occurs to me that what would be helpful would be to add the following to get_bloginfo():
And maybe more. These could then default to the theme + the file (i.e. get_bloginfo('template_url')+'/images', etc.) and be stated it's a best practice to use these in themes and plugins.
If I had these and there were used correctly I could write a CDN Integration plugin that would be (almost?) seemless.

Don't forget that you can set up WordPress to upload to any path on your
server. I for example have WordPress store my files on a different HTTPD
(lighttpd) off on another part of the server (different subdomain than the
I'd imagine you could do the same kinda thing if you can set up syncing
between a folder on your server and the CDN and if you can guess the URLs it
will result in.
