Web site with static content--best method?

Hi everyone,

I'm using Alfresco to manage static website content (JPGs, SWFs) so that I can also search the content via Alfresco's engine to return certain sets of files that meet search criteria.  As part of my application, I need to publish the static content for serving by Apache.

I'm stuck between the two WCM models right now–the Web Project is more suited for dynamic sites and not my situation, although it seems the easiest way to "spit out" files into a similar structure that exists from within Alfresco.

The other method is to use a regular workspace to store the content, but then exporting it to a file system doesn't seem possible without doing additional work to pull files manually from CIFS.

Am I missing something very obvious here that I should be doing to simply publish the static content out to a web server?  If so, can you point me to the Wiki article or a forum post explaining how to configure it?

Thanks for your help,
-Dave
