I agree, the only people who complain about URLs are developers, no one else
gives a crap. There's nothing wrong with Seaside's URLs, the whole point of
the framework is make you stop thinking about building URLs. How exactly is
a meaningless key any less annoying when placed in the path instead of as a
parameter? Don't worry about people fiddling with the _s and _k params, let
them, all they'll end up with is a lost session.
