[openstack-dev] [Heat][Horizon] Liberty horizon and get_file workaround?

I wanted to add my yaml as new resources (via /etc/heat/environment.d/default.yaml, but we use some external files in the OS::Nova::Server personality section.

It looks like the heat cli handles that when you pass yaml to it, but I couldn't get it to work either through horizon, or even heat-cli when it was a get_file from inside of the new resources.
                I can see why file:// might not work, but I sort of expected that at least http://blah would still work within horizon (if so, I could just stick it in swift somewhere, but alas, no soup).

What's the fastest path to a workaround?
                I was thinking of making a new resource plugin that reads the path, and returns the contents so it could be used as a get_attr, essentially cribbing the code from the heat command line processing.
                Is there a better/sane way?
                Is there some conceptual thing I'm missing that makes this moot?

Thanks in advance,
