Hi Frank,

There is a SwazooSeaside adapter for Seaside 2.8 on Squeak, done by 
Philippe Marchall and I propose that you just port this one to VW, it 
will be simplest and most useful way to do.

Just download and run Damien's squeak-web image 
http://damien.cassou.free.fr/squeak-dev.html, which has both Swazoo 2.1 
and Seaside 2.8 with SwazooSeaside adapter included and workable.

Adapter is made of three packages:

- Seaside-Squeak-Adapters
- Seaside-Adapters-Core
- Seaside-Adapters-Swazoo

You can run simply as SwazooSeaside startOn: 8088 then open 
http://localhost:8088/seaside .

And yes, thanks for your detailed report. Maybe you could prepare it for 
addition on Swazoo website? That way you'd help Swazoo a bit on docs area :)

Best regards
Maintainer of Swazoo
