Think of this:

MyFilter>>#listingOfProject: projectName
	<Path: '/{projectName}'>
	MyComponent new respondRendered


	self requestContext respond: [:response |
			contentType: WAMimeType textHtml;
			nextPutAll: (	WARenderCanvas builder
				fullDocument: true;
				rootBlock: [ :root | 
					self updateRoot:root ];
				render: [ :canvas |
					self renderContentOn: canvas ])].

This merely emulates a normal seaside run.
But more elaborate versions are possible.

So Long,
