I tried to back-port  it (version SeasideXUL-pk.48.mcz) and SeasideXUL
seems to work - even the call/answer mechanism. I've chosen the
version 2.9 in the beginning because I didn't know how deep changes
will I have to do in Seaside and the development version seemed to be
better starting point. Fortunately it was easier than I expected and
no changes directly in the Seaside core were necessary. Funny, because
initially I expected that the most reasonable way will be the start
with a new framework ;-). Btw. this project started on the 3th of
April 2008 so it's real newborn.

So now the development will continue on Seaside 2.8.
