In pursuit of the idea that all CSS tasks should be handled by More, cache breaking of referred to resources should be added.

At a minimum:

  • enabled by a command line switch
  • built-in function for generating a unique string to use however

For both usages, references that can be resolved (sprites, @imports if the file exists, url(), and so on) should have stable cache breakers to minimizes unnecessary re-downloads. In other cases, the hash should be monotonically increasing to avoid mishap.


Upon further reflection, the built-in function requires more string manipulation than I'd be comfortable promoting.

More should be purely declarative, that'd be veering a little too close to proper computation.
