Yes, DabbleDB <www.dabbledb.com> and SeasideHosting

Seaside is different. You can use Seaside to do that kind of things,
but that is not the idea behind the framework: Seaside is all about
hiding the low-level aspects of URLs, HTTP-Requests, HTTP-Responses,
etc. Seaside provides you with tools to easily model flows of pages,
to compose and reuse widgets, to build state-full web applications,

Still it is possible to move the session key into a cookie, by setting
the configuration option of the application, though most people don't
bother about this. Seaside is strong at building highly interactive
web applications, not at building static web sites with REST-full

You need a more recent version of Seaside, try Seaside2.6a3-lr.67
