Your parenthetical comment ... well, yes, that
*certainly* is true.

People *do* use Delphi and VB plenty, even in
the present.

If you can make enough assumptions about your
Web client (that Java is enabled, and/or that
you're using Netscape and you are willing to
indulge in tricky multipart programming, and/or
...), you can get enough state to be useful.
A lot of people would say at that point that
you might as well do client-server without Web
weight.
