Does anyone here know this guts of SS well? I've wondered for some time what it would take to decouple the SCM repository bits from the web front end. 

I think I was listening to independent misinterpretations when someone suggested adding a query API to it; if we did that, it wouldn't be hard to attach various "views" or web front ends (e.g., we might make a front end that's "spider food" such that searching for a package at Google might turn up a project page, like with CPAN. The current default Seaside URLs pretty much guarantee that SEO is DOA.)

It seems like having an integrated web front end probably encumbers SS. I wonder what the performance impact of being both a WFE and a SCM winds up being. 

Any thoughts?
