Well I think what Seaside is missing is SI Unit test.

If you have some experience with Glorp or Polluck then you know that 
these are both complicated things to handle.

Being able to search working models for almost everething however is 
really assuring, improves the quality of the products and certainly 
saves a lot of time end effort for everybody.
