Improved documentation for Nested Conversations

                 Key: JBSEAM-1982
                 URL: http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBSEAM-1982
             Project: JBoss Seam
          Issue Type: Feature Request
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0.CR1
            Reporter: Jacob Orshalick

Nested conversations have been discussed at length on several occasions on the forum.  The documentation states:

"A conversation may be thought of as a continuable state. Nested conversations allow the application to capture a consistent continuable state at various points in a user interaction, thus insuring truly correct behavior in the face of backbuttoning and workspace management."

This gives the impression of use of nested conversations to achieve a continuation server approach.  This approach is possible and is described at the forum reference, but it seems that most developers use nested conversations for sub-flows ending the conversation at the end of the sub-flow.  This does not allow back-buttoning to the sub-flow (which seems to be in conflict with the documentation above).

(I will add a link to an article describing the continuation approach in a few weeks, perhaps it could serve as a patch)
