'Seaside' is a Smalltalk framework for what might be called "Modal Web 
Development" or "Synchronous Web Programming", or even "Continuation 
Based Web Apps".

Very sexy it looks too.  And it seems to be generating a lot of interest 
- Ruby and Java variants have already sprung up:

      http://rubyforge.org/projects/borges/
      http://lakeshore.sourceforge.net/

I googled for the python spin-off but didn't find one. Closest I found 
was Imposter (http://csoki.ki.iif.hu/~vitezg/impostor/) which looks like 
an earlier, partially failed attempt to do what Seaside now seems to be 
delivering.

Anyway, I guess all I'm doing is drawing this to the community's 
attention. Sophisticated web applications seems to be one of Python's 
key domains and this looks a significant new development in the area.
