really? I found dojo to be very intuitive when it comes to doing  
things. Steeper learning curve than other frameworks? I would say its  
about the same give or take. I mean common lets not kid our selves  
how hard is it associate  <div dojoType="someWidget"></div> to a  
widget call? dojo.io.bind is brain dead easy when it comes to Ajax  
calls. Also taking into consideration dojo encompasses so many things  
that you have one central javascript framework to do it all. No need  
to flip flop between different APIs to get things done. Remind you of  
anything? ahem Catalyst?
