Subclassing WAApplication is discouraged and normally not necessary
(Seaside 2.6 and earlier required that). Simply override
#initialRequest: in your root component.

Have a look at WABrowser and the other components that override
#initialRequest: and #updateRoot: to see some examples. This works
exactly the same in Seaside 2.8 and 3.0.
