[Seaside] [ANN] Seaside One-Click Experience

Thanks for the one  click experience -- but are the mouse buttons
configured to meet new users expectations.  I presume that most new
users will be working on MS Windows OS.

In my experience the right mouse button normally opens a context menu.
Displaying the halos may only confuse a new user.  And they may not
even think to use the middle button, or know how to find the
preferences browser.

Just my 2c worth but thanks again for putting this together.  As an
occasional dabbler in squeak it is difficult to keep track of the
required versions of squeak and the packages to reliably install
