[Seaside] OSCON "contest"

I agree that the competition is slanted toward Rails--but since it is
being sponsored by the Portland Ruby Brigade that seems only fair.
Given the expectations of the hosts and attendees, it seemed
reasonable to try to bend Seaside into that sort of application. Some
of Seaside's power is that we can do URL parsing if we need to do so.
If nothing else, I'd like to avoid an argument about the relative
merits of RESTful URLs vs URL rewiring--particularly in this crowd. In
any case, I'll probably save those features for the end and if I run
out of time I'll fail that part of the test.
