For what it's worth, practically none of the Squeak website uses Seaside:

- squeak.org uses Smallwiki, which has it's own web engine.
- swiki uses swiki, which uses PWS
- lists.squeakfoundation.org uses Mailman, a python tool
- bugs.squeak.org uses Mantis, a php tool
- map.squeak.org uses HttpView2
- people.squeakfoundation.org uses some php tool
- source.squeakfoundation.org uses SqueakSource, which uses

So, Seaside can't really be said to be "what we have"
