Erm... The squeak image doesn't have to be running on port 80 - apache
can forward requests to an image on another port same as usual. But
that's not really the point.

My observations are that:

a) this demo is run by someone else, not the Seaside team, so there's
little we can do about what port it's on
b) the server seems to be simply down (at least right now)
c) jQuery is only in Seaside 2.9, which is under heavy development and
still in alpha
d) Once it goes beta, it would probably be a good idea to run the
demos on seaside.st

I don't think any of us are interested in making things difficult for
a few potential users just to prove a point about their firewalls. Is
this why so many sites have big warnings saying "this link goes to an
external site"?
