I thought you have a blog or two.

I'm undecided on this, mostly because I don't really understand what these
scripts do. I'm using some xmlHttpRequest stuff now, which uses
logic in smalltalk. I don't know what to think about actions like
reordering of items *in* browser and then somehow update the server state,
it doesn't sound very good to me

Heh. Yeah, as 2.5 came out and I looked at the configuration framework, my
firt reaction was "Huh?". I use very little of its features

I kinda have my own branch, since my changes to seaside are too numerous,
so I tend to apply fixes as they show up on the list (there haven't been
that many, though).
