But it's not the same destination; it might be the same information, but
it's the same information shown at a different time, possibly with
different underlying state, etc.  Never step into the same river twice,
and all that.  This has practical consequences: the reason backtracking
works so transparently is that Seaside knows exactly which page *view*
you've backtracked to, not just which page.  Reusing urls would break
