[Seaside] how to render access to a JS argument variable?

Wow, all I need to do is work up an email question, and it seems to lead
myself to a solution! :-) In this case, I can't
use JQueryInstance>>#replaceWith: only lets the user pass a String
argument, not a jQuery argument. Because the version of JSObject>>#render:
always returns a String no matter what, which will never let a JSObject
subclass render its code onto the stream. Strange!
And, so, the solution was to #call: 'replaceWith' with: myJQPost myself.
Here is the code, for comparison to the original:
html script defer with:
((html jQuery id: buttonId) onClick:
((html jQuery id: replacementId) call: 'replaceWith' with:
I think this is slowing my learning of Seaside -- the thought that I should
be able to use all the convenience methods and get all the power of JQuery,
but, in fact, some of these methods provide no way to render the other
versions of the jQuery calls which take different argument types. Only the
string types are supported. Am I right about this?
Another example is the "data" argument of a $.ajax(...) request. Seaside
