[Seaside] Surprised at callback/livecallback on multiselect

I'm confused because in both #renderAnchorOn: and #renderButtonOn:  
the method comments are right and the callback block is never evaluated.

On the other hand, the callback blocks in #renderCheckBoxOn:  
#renderInput1On: #renderInput2On: and #renderMultiSelectOn: would  
indeed be evaluated if the forms were submitted (and a way to submit  
the forms was coded in those methods), but there are no comments in  
those methods that pretend otherwise. In #renderDateInputOn:  
#renderListOn: #renderRadioOn: and #renderTimeInputOn:, the callback  
block would also be evaluated if one were supplied and the form were  

To summarize: when there is a liveCallback block, the callback block  
is only disabled for anchors and buttons.
