[Seaside] Comet and #call:

I guess I must be missing something because I see no difference between 
#call: and #show:, except for the fact that #call blocks and #show does not.

When I do

             update: #componentPane
             with: Component1 new.

The network traces in firebug shows that only the required resources for 
Component1 are requested to the server. On the other hand when I hit the 
link rendered by:

Component1>>renderContentOn: hmtl

             html anchor
                     callback: [self show: Component2 new];
                     with: 'A call'.

firebug shows that everything that belongs to the page is requested 
again to the server (all the .css, .js, etc).
