There's no philosophical problem with CloudFront, but there might be
practical ones. While I should theoretically be able to use s3fs to allow
the software to seamlessly interact with S3, the software also assumes
you're using it to stream media files rather than an external service.
Maybe this change will be easy to implement, maybe it won't -- I won't
know until I try. If it isn't, I need to come up with a Plan B.
At this point in time, I'm just trying to make sure I understand my major
options for setting up the service.
