If you only need the dojoType you can simply make a class extentsion
in WATagBrus

dojoType: aString
    self atttrubuteAt: 'dojoType' put: aString

html textInput
    html textInput
        on: #userName of: self user;
        dojoType: 'dijit.form.TextBox'

there should already be a method for length. If you want to set the
name, then the Seaside callback mechanism won't work anymore.
