The one concern I have about "the object is the UI" approach is upgrade.
Web applications are constantly being refactored, and upgrading a
persistent object store is a *tough* problem. It's my last unsolved
dilemma with the web-calculus, and there is little discussion of this in
the Waterken docs, so if someone has a solution, please let me know. I
think upgrade should be covered after the requisite "Hello World!".
