Respectfully, I disagree. I just started a few months ago with
Seaside, and the configuration app helped me through some of the
tutorials, I found on the web. Even some of the sample apps, Google
charts for instance, require you to use the configuration app to get
it working. I agree that once you know how to configure you own
application, then doing it via a class method is the way to go.
Documentation aside, its not obvious what is required to add support
for the various libraries, and your own session objects etc.,
especially when you are writing your first application.

I also find it useful to be able to add the Seaside development
libraries for testing, and remove them as needed.

Just an opinion from someone starting with Seaside, :-)

I would be willing to try to update the UI, if people thought it useful.
