Subject map:mount - ish question

Hi, this is my first time writing something to this list.  I'm a bit
of a Cocoon n00b, but not new to XSLT.  I just discovered Cocoon, and
I love it!

I'm setting up a web site that consists of two main directories:
  Main - contains my sitemap and all my main XML content
  Other - heritage image of a bunch of source code

I want to keep these separate, because the "Other" directory is under
its own CM system (SourceSafe, blech).

I'd like to serve the content from "Other", though, from URLs like
http://host/Other/...., where "...." could be just about any type
of file.

When just serving files from "Main", I started out with a bunch of
patterns in my sitemap to feed "straight-thru" files, like

  <map:match pattern='**.txt'>
    <map:read mime-type='text/plain'

Then I augmented them like so:

  <map:match pattern='**.txt'>
    <map:select type='resource-exists'>
      <map:when test='{1}.txt'>
        <map:read mime-type="text/plain"
        <map:read mime-type="text/plain"

My question is, is there an easy way to do this across the board,
without having to rewrite every straight-thru pipeline?  I'd like
something like this in the front:

  <map:match pattern='Other/**'>
    <!-- reset the 'src' base directory to '../Other', and continue
         matching  -->

Any help would be fantastically appreciated.  BTW, I have really
looked for this answer in the two books I have and in the online
