Hi again

So if I understand it right, by using this view server, it is possible to 
totally avoid the javascripting? There seems to be a lot of overhead when 
using javascript, e.g converting erlang terms to json, message passing and 
so forth

The biggest improvement is speed. The native view server able to sneak
all the way into the same OS process as the HTTP request so that there
isn't even message passing overhead (except for lists).

And its Erlang in case you prefer that flavor.
