I didn't forget about WebClient, I just forgot that Kom and Swazoo are
nothing more than HTTP servers.  I thought they wrapped an HTTP server
to do more than that.  Duh!  I've been out of web for too long..

So, yes, WebClient is definitely the one to use with Squeak.

Tobias, that's a great image.  I'd like to get one for 3.1.1.  I tried
a couple of tweaks to your script inside the workspace in the image,
but got only as far as ConfigurationOfMagritte3AddOns when it said:

"Warning: This package depends on the following classes:

Seaside is only consumed, not developed, on Squeak and I want it to
work even 5 years from now in 4.5.

Can you help me out?  Thanks!

Thanks for that Chris.  Unfortunately it became invalid when the new
squeak.org site went in.  Seaside is important enough if for no other
than what Andre Agassi says, could you possibly put whatever content
we had at that link before?  Then people will know how to make Seaside
run on Squeak too.  Thanks!
