Wrong! Web framework support is essential for such a feature.

Well, who is the arbitrer which features belongs to web framework and
which no? Seaside? What I did I just list what Aida has and how compares
to Seaside and Iliad, And invited you guys to complete this comparison,
don't forget that! Disclaimer is clearly shown at the top of the
comparison and Seasiders are (and were) welcome to help balancing it.
Please do so!
