  I used a WATask to handle the login logic for www.practicemusic.com, but after login all of the other views are shown with a call:, like this; 

	| user component |
	self call: self userLoginView.
	(self userLoginView user) notNil  
		ifTrue: [ 
			component := self firstComponentToDisplayForUser: self userLoginView user.
			[ component notNil ]
				whileTrue: [ 
					self call: component.
					component := component nextComponentToBeDisplayed ] ]

I'll have to think about whether I could use WATask for some sophisticated workflow/notification processing in my system.
