[Seaside] Image map tag

I guess part of the problem is that I'm no expert to how image maps work,
nor am I quite comfortable customizing/extending Seaside, yet. It seems
like the interesting parts would be:
-how to specify the image (or course)
-a way to add callbacks and tooltips, one for each rectangular or other
addRectangle: rectA tooltip: 'do A action' callback: [ self aClicked ];
addRectangle: rectB tooltip: 'do B action' callback: [ self bClicked ];
addCircle: (Array with: x with: y with: size) tooltip: 'do circle
action' callback: [ self circleClicked ];
This is how I imagine it could work.

I believe Carl would like WAImageMapTag to provide an api
as complete as WAImageTag's api, i.e. #altText:, #document:,
#mimeType:, #url:, #fileName:
Currently, the only way to supply an image to an WAImageMapTag
is to send #form: with a Form object.

Carl is using VW, there is no screenshot application in VW.
The #form: message cannot be used since VW does not have Form.

I agree with Carl that we should add the missing apis.
Maybe with an api like this
callback: [:pt | self clickAt: pt];
image: [:image | ... ]
where image is an instance of WAImageTag
If no one else volunteers, I can take care.
