The only other thing is to use an XPath-like specification on the Smalltalk
side, methinks. Whether you want *that*...

Yup. For example, using VisualWorks' VisualWave is tempting (Wave is a toolkit
wizardry around it to fool the programmer into thinking that they're writing a
native Smalltalk UI program), but it integrates badly with lower-level stuff
(like their own Servlet/SSP framework - go figure). In effect, you're left
with a big black box and your application will be able to do just what the
Wave designers could think of (or, more likely, had the time for to write it).
OTOH, the design seems to have been inspired by WebObjects and I only heard
good stuff about it...
