I almost* did this by using __FILE__; and finding the part of the path that
matches the plugins base directory, and then tacking the right side of the
rest of the path on to the end of wpurl + the plugins base directory.
*It needs a little tweaking to work on windows installs, as I currently have
it; what with the slashes in opposite land. But you get the general jist.
