I personally do have a basic knowledge of html, javascript and css.  What I had
to know to get a project done.  But basically all I hear you saying.  you don't
want to put anything in Seaside that would make it easier for someone with
a limited knowledge of these areas to actually do useful work before they
can become experts.
