Millions of web applications have been written without programmatic
HTML generation, without callback-based request handling, without
embedded components, and without a modal session model; and still we
decided to do it different. Similarly the redirects serve a well
thought purpose. If you think these design decisions are not worth to
paying for, you are probably better off using something else.

It is funny, that in the past 10 years nobody ever complained about
that; and now that everybody is doing AJAX anyway this does not matter
anymore (Seaside automatically avoids the redirect for AJAX calls).
