Thanks Boris.. I was actually looking at WABrush earlier but was afraid 
it wouldn't support js emission early in the game to get into the <head>
portion of the HTML document.. Right now I'm using the #updateRoot: on
my WADecoration based object to do that and it works fine.. However, I
like what you've done above much better.

P.S. Assuming I keep the backwards compatibility of the existing 
SeasideYUI code, are you OK with me making updates to the existing 
package on the Cincom repository?  Thought I'd ask before I stepped on 
any toes.. (8->
