Don't need to. You're still thinking in the program 1 -> program 2 ->
program 3 mode. If you're in program 3 maybe the app allows you to go to
program 2 but you can't get straight to program 1 without going through
program 2. This model simply doesn't hold water in the web world. Any
attempts to make a web browsers deal with this model results in a, IMHO,
klunky web interface.

You need to break the app into business logic components. If broken
successfully, these can be called in any logical order and the web user can
jump from/to any screen.
