I said "Web app as defined by Ruby on Rails." In their parlance -- which I
think is fairly standard on the Web -- you create an application in a
server-side language like PHP or Ruby and then you glue your browser
interface to that application. Depending on how much of that definition you
need to have, you can have lots of shades of gray.
