No. I don't think so. The relationship between the parent and child is just
WAComponent subclass: MADetailDisplay
MAPersonDetail subclass: MADetailDisplay
If I write this in the subclass:
super renderContentOn: html
"Client renders here".
The super's method will be finished when the child's method starts.
