Ah nods, I meant an application specific page as well. You can certainly do this in a BasePage
BorderPage, however the reason I'm suggesting you don't, is your BasePage can grow quite large
the number of services grow. We've found that large super pages can be difficult to digest
by new 
developers working on our application.

However since everybody's needs is different a super page exposing services might not pose
a problem 
in your case. And if down the road it does, you can easily refactor the services into a separate

Service Locator or Service Factory class.

Agreed :)

I'm also hoping a future release of Click could expose a page creation service interface so
ClickServlet doesn't have to be subclassed.

kind regards
