They *are* session-dependent if the page had some breadcrumb trail on it,
or perhaps a different view depending on whether you're logged in or are
in the middle of a search.

That's why it's not automatic.  It's up to every application (author) to
decide if this particular component showing this particular view is session
dependent or independent, and if independent, if it's worth making
it bookmarkable.

In traditional web programming, the default is "sessions are hard,
bookmarks are easy".  In Seaside, the default is "sessions are easy,
bookmarks are hard".  You can't get both at the same time.
