Hi Armin, I'm implementing a send_static_file_versioned view (which gets urls like /vstatic/<versionstamp>/<path>) and I would like it to just return app.send_static_file(filename, cache_timeout=HUGE) but that function does not currently accept the additional options that flask.helpers.send_file accepts. I believe this patch would accomplish what I'm looking for. Would it make sense to merge back into flask?

Since send_static_file is a view function/method I don't think it makes sense to forward arbitrary keyword arguments there. If you want to customize it, override it in a subclass or bypass that function directly.
