Seaside-REST builds only on the request, response and request handler
classes on Seaside. It does not use any sessions, continuations or
similar (as nothing that has REST in the name should). Seaside-REST
will not put anything into the database besides the request handlers
and that only initially on set up. A normal request will not put
anything into the database.
