No, Vi was just an example.  My point is it's a false assumption that every
program *must* be friendly to newbs to be successful or worth using.  

Not that Seaside is that difficult, but the goal shouldn't be trying to hand
hold people who don't know anything about web development, Javascript, or
Ajax and try and make web developers out of them.  The goal is a better web
framework for *web developers*.  If you don't know much about web
development, you've got things you need to learn before you pick up Seaside.

And that's the main point, Seaside is the foundation, it's not supposed to
be the ultimate component library nor should it try to be, that's not what
frameworks are for.  Frameworks serve as the foundation of such libraries.
