You're missing the point: I don't want a single app, I want many apps
all generated on an as needed basis.  It's not "app1" but "appN" where N
varies from 1 to 2000 and I need 2000 different laszlo lzx files that
can change on a minute by minute basis.

I've been wondering about this a bit myself.  You'd likely need to have
a deeper understanding within the Laszlo components themselves as to
what a repeater or dynamic sections looks like.  These new components
would essentially duplicate some of the logic of the current back end,
binding would be in effect a concern of the Laszlo components in some
