I don't think there is a Seaside ToolBuilder yet. In 3.9, you have  
builders for Morphic and MVC. Plus there is the one Tweak.

Also, you must not reference the Pluggable*Spec classes directly, but  
always go through the ToolBuilder messages. Just have a look at the  
senders of pluggableWindowSpec to get a feel for how to use ToolBuilder.
