Ok, I would strongly recommend that you separate your model from your
view.  That is, WBCategory and WBItem should be subclasses of Object, not
of IAComponent.  Then build your Seaside components as separate classes -
you may find that you end up with a parallel structure (WBCategoryViewer,
WBItemViewer), but keep it distinct.

If you do that then what I said in the last message about iterating over
data, not components, should make more sense.
