Never subclassed it directly, but subclass WAApplication plenty which is 
itself a WARegistry subclass.  Usually I just want to get access to the 
request at the main application entry point before a particular session 
is invoked, a good example would be for rate limiting request using 
memcached or handling a response not meant for a session like a server 
heartbeat check from a load balancer or something.  Maybe responding 
with a generated sitemap as well bypassing all the session machinery.
