I bet that chapter 6's "Server-side setup for the examples" has been written by Bear. Am I right ?

No, way too obvious an explanation. 'org_bibeault' is a code generator written by Tom, named in honor of the Ol' Rye Grain muffins cooked by Bear's granny that helped to keep us alive during the gruelling coding marathons that led to the creation of this book.

It generates the Javascript and HTML for the examples automatically. We then run it through the GWT compiler, using the little-known --reverse flag to generate Java from the JS. Unfortunately, recent versions of the generator have developed a rudimentary ego, and it's started signing the code that it creates.

I'm kidding, of course. You're right, Bear wrote that chapter.
