Your top level component should implement #initialRequest:,
which will be passed a WARequest object, on which you can call
things like #at: to get the various params.  See the implementors of
#initialRequest: for examples (only WABrowser in the core Seaside distro).

once validated, you can set up your components and subcomponents to reply
appropriately within the session.
