Yes, they're all blue-ribbon connoisseurs of the highest order, bless 'em all.

Your application certainly has special requirements.

I suppose if you always use the same url and redirect after every action back to that url. That way
you should be able to kill the back button.

It does require that you centralise things through a single request and not allow state to be stored
on query strings, only by using cookies and server variables.
