I also found the request flow and control flow in spiffy quite tricky to
get my head around initially. However, having grokked it, I then went
back to the documentation and couldn't really work out any way of
improving it.

I think a lot of my challenges were around discoverability: spiffy makes
heavy use of parameters rather than procedure arguments which makes
finding out about the state available rather hard.

Once I'd worked out that I could use the vhost-map to override the
default behaviour, creating a "sealed app" became much easier.
