Do you mean that you actually save your Seaside application image?
I would think that the "production" image is frozen, and all data
is saved in the associated DB. If you're trying to capture session
state by doing an image save, then I find it hard to imagine that
an image saved at a random moment in time could be restarted with
any certainty as to it's correspondence with a user's web client.
So I don't see the point in doing it.
