Yea, something like this is exactly what I was thinking of. The session
subclasses could be overridden to allow arbitrary rendering classes to
be chosen based on a configurable set of rules (configurable from the
web site, to keep consistant with the rest of the design). At that
point, you can do anything Cacoon, AxKit, etc. can do, but with no where
near the level of complexity those products have.

Betreff: RE: [Seaside] [ANN] Seaside Installer
Not sure if this helps here, but method #rendererClass does not
need to return a constant. The class can be computed using data found
in the incoming request or even in the native request.
Computing the class of the output document based upon the request would
only need a small refactoring. In places where WAHtmlDocument is
the actual document class would be supplied by the session where
session subclasses would be able to compute the actual document class.
