[Seaside] Using the select tag

Hi Philippe,

It's possible that I want work with a too old method for Seaside. I made 
many cgi in my programmer life ;-)

For me, when I use a select tag, I don't use the value and the caption 
to do the same operation. The caption is displayed for the user, the 
value is transmitted to the server. It's very distinct to me.

In my case, I have a database table with a foreign key (the value) and a 
description (the caption). The key is immutable but the text can change. 
It's logical for me that the user selects a caption and that the serveur 
receives the key.

Olivier ;-)
