Ok Ramon..  You're begging my next question.. What sort of stuff should 
need to be changed IF I switched?  I'm assuming at least the following :

1) #rendererClass currently returns ^Seaside.WAAsyncRenderCanvas
    but I gather it should be WARenderCanvas for Scriptaculous?

2) Base component should be WAComponent instead of the Async version

3) Change instances of html blah ... liveCallback: [] to something using
    onClick:[] instead?  I gather I need to specify a "control & model
    for each item -- not sure what those do exactly yet..

Did I miss anything? If I did switch now it would be fairly trivial 
assuming the Scriptaculous stuff has something like the liveCallbacks.

So, IF I switched, how *could* I update a div within the current page
when a particular event is triggered?
