No, unless you expect periodic requests. Seaside only gains control if
somebody requests something.

It is however easy in Smalltalk to have a background thread do
something from time to time:

   [ [ (Delay forDuration: 1 minute) wait. "do something" ] repeat ] fork

There is also a package that allows you to schedule events in more
sophisticated ways, but I forgot how it is called.
