Right, the periodical only updates the contents of the paragraph, it
does not rerender itself. Doing so would likely start two periodicals
on the client side, it'd act as a new one, but the old one would
probably still be running. You could reuse a periodical over many
different renders, but it'd render a new client side instance each time,
it wouldn't update the existing one.
When I said the object was transient, I meant that they're a thin veneer
per se. Treat them like you would treat any other render method,
they're for rendering, not really meant for storing in instance
variables or reusing.
If you dig around and look at how they work, they basically get
to see how they work.
The canvas API is html in Smalltalk syntax, scriptalicious is basically
this is my understanding of how things work from my own experience, I
could well be wrong.
