I think the Seaside core developers are concentrating on the right
thing. The kinds of things you're looking for are being addressed by
-- Cincom with Web Velocity
-- Gemstone with GLASS
-- Heeg with SeaBreeze
Bear in mind that Oracle Forms is a commercial product built by a
vendor, so it's not a surprise that Seaside should have a split
between core and value add.
