My understanding is that when you deploy Orchard to Azure Web Sites the engine uses the local Media file system folder. However I'd like to keep my assets in the Media folder separate from my codebase (just like how the content is separate in the DB). I've played with orchard in a Azure Web Role and this gives me what I want, but I'd rather deploy to Azure Web Sites.

So far I haven't been able to figure out how to get Orchard deployed to an Azure Web Site to have the Media Picker work the same way as the Azure Web Role deployment option. Am I missing something?

I looked in the gallery for a module that does it, but can't find anything. Hoping I'm missing something, but if not this might be my first custom module (Contrib.MediaPickerForAzureBlob).
