Has anybody experience with approaches like wurfl/wall (there exist  
libraries for PHP and Java)? The idea basically is to write html and  
then automatically generate output depending on the capabilities of  
the mobile device. This shouldn't be too hard to implement in Seaside  
(e.g., by porting wall from PHP) but I don't have experience with how  
well this generic approach works in practice...
