which is only appropriate for a lisp-based webapp framework,
because of the recursiveness :-)

hmm... If you're targeting the "one-click-newbie" here,
we're talking about a local test environment on a linux
or windows box. Assuming the one-click Scribo is based
on Squeak, the world window will be open, where a
nice workspace with a short explanation on how to handle
these tasks would be visible.

IIRC, squeaks introductory workspaces even had clickable
smalltalk code samples.

Easy to implement, no external tools required.
