Those who are interested can now look at the latest snapshot
(http://beta4.com/seaside/downloads/seaside-snapshot.cs), in the
Seaside-Experimental category, for an example of components without
templates.  This isn't anything even vaguely usable yet, just playing
around, but it gives a sense of how easy something like that would be if
it were desired.  IAUntemplatedComponent provides the support,
IAUntemplatedTest provides a short example.
