Boris, I appreciate your comments. Yes, it is possible to 'improve' via the open 
source model.

Let's play the entering anchor game.

Start with 

html anchor

Nothing is offered here with the code completion - we have no idea what is next. 
We look into WAAnchorTag and discover that an instance variable of 'url' exists. 
An then... 

You might browse that callback: is indeed available as a possibility.

Is a better code completion the tool we 'old timers' need?

What got me interested in Seaside is continuations as I implemented a 
continuation capable controller in VB6 more than a decade ago.

I put up with the way of Seaside and suffer through its 'handling' of html 
button onClick: ((html jQuery expression: 'external_links a')
onClick: 'return confirm(\"You are going to visit: \"+ this.href)');
 		 with: 'Attach Click' 
when I notice Seaside's complete lack of knowledge about JavaScript when it 
thinks that onClick: 'return 
confirm("You are going to visit: "+ this.href)');
 		 with: 'Attach Click' 
is complete and correct?

Oh, well - I still like Seaside mainly because of Smalltalk.
