I just took a look. It definitely is a beginner oriented chapter.

I'm afraid building web applications should be considered general

build well-structured complex web applications.

Hmm. It is very easy to keep updated, as Seaside is very stable. I don't 
know how many people on this list are currently using Seaside, but a 
very large part of them have used Seaside.

Hey! Finally we have some code that can be safely loaded and unloaded...
