+1; quick read.

Re #fileliteral vs. #resourceliteral, I think the latter makes sense
because items are in the "Resources" folder of playgrounds. (The other day
I tried referencing a file outside the playground and was confused when
dragging it in made a copy.) You might also consider naming the parameter
resourceFileName instead of resourceName so it's clear that the file
extension is also required (which I assume it is(?)).

Is it necessary to include "literal" in the name? Isn't the fact that
there's special compiler support enough to indicate that it's a
literal-like value?
