[Seaside] seaside and rest

Hi Oliver,
I also had a hard time to use it... what I did is to study bibliocello and squeaksource3 packages (both at seaside.gemstone.com/ss)
One interesting thing I found, is that you normally will want do something like this: 

	| index |
	<Path: '/index'>

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

This is the "common answer pattern"  I found. 
Of course, this is just an example, and IRL you'll want to place the response login in a separate method, probable extending WAComponent with a method #respondRendered of something (both bibliocello and squeaksource3 uses this approach).

I hope this helps :)
