Seaside is different by design.

In fact you give Seaside the list of objects you want to display in
the select-box and Seaside tells you which one of these objects was
selected. That's it.

Everything else, like POST URLs, <select> name, <option> values, ...
are automatically generated by Seaside for you. If you let Seaside do
that, things are really easy; if you want to do that yourself, Seaside
might not be the right choice (although you can tell it not to do it
for you).
