Maybe is time to start thinking in a "Seaside full stack"?

I think there are some tasks we (as a community) should do for enforce 
seaside adoption, that does not belong to seaside it self, but would be 
cool to have.

I think we need to cover:
- Persistence for the Seaside (maybe a "Coral" project?)
I think this as an abstraction layer with you can choose between a 
magma solution and a glorp solution.
- Integration for the Seaside ("FlyingFish", "Shipyard"?)
an abstraction layer to publicate and consume web services (awful but 
necesary for productive applications) and maybe another and coolest 
integration ways, such as hessian.
- And of course, a "Describe it all" ("Voyage"?)
based on magritte, we should provide a way to do all of this in a clean 
and elegant way.

What do you think?
