Well I was being a bit tongue in cheek - but yeah, I think it's  
inevitable that we'll see more sophisticated client side  
applications. If the whole area wasn't so littered with buzzwords and  
hype I think even more of us hard core techies would be excited about  
it :)

It doesn't in general make much sense to have an application's  
generated by the server when you can offload that work to the client - 
and- get a better UI as a result.
