[Seaside] Seaside and Ajax

If you want to do ajax requests in Seaside, jQuery is the way to go.
Scriptaculous itself is outdated (last update was 5 years ago) and everything you want to do with that can be done using jQuery and jQuery-UI.
I *know* there is a need for more elaborate documentation (in the book), though it’s really not that hard to understand from the examples. The *biggest* thing is that you must understand what jQuery is and does. If you try understanding how to work with jQuery by only looking at the Seaside binding, you _will_ get lost. Sorry if I try to stress too much, but I think this is where most Smalltalkers are going wrong: they don’t take a look at the jQuery documentation. So… my advice is: read jQuery documentation and examples, then take a look at how Seaside binds to that library. I’m sure you will understand.
And I’m happy to answer questions if you have any on the road :)
