handling css files as well .. for concideration

I'm upgrading to 1.6 so I'm finding all my small changes and have one I've been meaning to suggest since forever (1.3)....

As a suggestion, the css module can be made to include .css files as well as .js files.

In CustomCssHandler.cs, functionBuildDisplayShape(BuildDisplayContext context) made a small change for your concideration... the middle "else if block" below allows inclusion of .css files. I use it on content items to include one-off css for a given page. Good practice or not, its handy.
                foreach (var script in scripts) {
                    if (script.EndsWith(".js", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase)) {
                        _resourceManager.Value.Include("script", script, null);

                    else if (script.EndsWith(".css", StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase))
                        _resourceManager.Value.Include("stylesheet", script, null);

                    else {
                        _resourceManager.Value.Require("script", script);
It add the appropriate markup to the head of the page i.e.

<link href="/OrchardLocal/Themes/MyThemes/css/homepage.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
