I think yes. VW Swazoo-Seaside connection as an example is definitively 
to follow.

I worked with Michel a while ago so that Seaside is one of the Swazoo 
Sites and this is to be preferred approach on Squeak too. To put in 
other words: make a subclass of Site (say SeasideSite) and override 
#answerTo: to get a http request.

That way we can run more than one web app frameworks on the same Swazoo 
server at once.

Best regards
