[Glass] Seaside compatibility matrix?

The initial build passed without a rate limit violation, but that 
doesn't mean anything with regards to rate limits:), since the Seaside 
build itself was not necessarily exceeding the api rate limit ---  ... 
It does mean that Johan was not letting failing GemStone builds slide 

I'm running builds a second time[2] with updates to the latest versions 
of GemStone so we'll see if our luck holds out ...
