Can't edit a static resource in a managed package

I have seen a couple of posts about this but have found no solution.

We have a managed app deployed to an enterprise org.


We are trying to edit any of the static resources and we don't have that option.  Why?


Once a static resource is part of a managed package, you can't edit it in the subscriber environment. As the ISV, you can update it in the Developer Edition org where you created the managed package and upload a new version of the package to distribute. 


This is a good doc on what is package-able, edit-able, upgrade-able, etc: https://na1.salesforce.com/help/doc/en/salesforce_packaging_guide.pdf (Chapter 3)

This feature actually exists today. You have to go to the edit page for a static resource to update the zip.
