I like that. Would that be a reasonable default for Seaside session 
behavior? It seems that it would be nice to be in the core unless there 
are problems I don't see. I definitely agree with Ramon and as an end 
user would greatly appreciate such a feature. And as a web developer 
taking good care of resources is also important. This strikes an 
excellent balance.
