+=item tangent
+A tangent is a link or redirect that causes Jifty to save the current state into a L</continuation> for a later L</return>. This operation is handy for situations when you want to jump to another page or form, but return to this page when the user is done with the "tangent" page. Because of the use of continuations, this can be especially handy because a user could go on multiple tangents and eventually return to the start.
 =item upgrade
 Generally, your Jifty application will change over time. Most of these changes will be simple changes to behavior or appearance. When changes are made to the L</schema> structure of your database, you may need to perform an B<upgrade>. An B<upgrade> is the process by which you rename columns, initialize data, or otherwise update information that needs to be updated when a change to the database needs to be made. See L<Jifty::Upgrade>, L<Jifty::Manual::Upgrading>, and L<Jifty::Script::Schema>.
