This only affects MAComponent subclasses. Magritte expects classes
only to implement #new in such a way that they return an instance or
throw an exception. This is certainly true for standard Seaside
components. So this does in no way affect interoperability of
MAComponent subclasses and Seaside components.

I agree. An example of what I mean:
A generic time chooser component Seaside component. We can then build
a Magritte component that uses this seaside component. This way
anybody can use it and there's only very little additional effort on
the Magritte side.

In general I see very limited use to describe Seaside components with
Magritte because you don't configure them dynamically in general.
(there are some nice Pier examples where this makes sense)
