If you create new instances for every response, they shouldn't be 
components, and they shouldn't be included in #children.  Just have 
your menu items descend from Object, have them implement #renderOn: 
instead of #renderContentOn:, and it should work fine.  They won't 
respond to #call: or #addDecoration: or anything like that, but I'm 
guessing you're not using those anyway.

Once more, for emphasis: if it doesn't stick around between requests, 
it's *not* a WAComponent.
