The idea is precisely not to do like php and others.

I want to be able to make web applications that work like client / 
server applications communicating through a terminal.

In that case, the browser is the terminal, it displays things and send 
events to the server.

It's scalable with the number of processes your server can handle 
simultaneously. But each process runs only to handle a request. 
Otherwise it sleeps (so it does not use CPU at all, and it can be 
swapped if needed).

What this little quick & dirty example does not show, is that some 
requests do not need to handle by the session process (which can handle 
one request once): all static ones, like css, images, and so on.

I will try to publish a gb.web.form2 very early component soon, maybe it 
will make things clearer.
