Last time we did this we used dojo; while the widgets are maybe not quite
as good as ext's the class system and XHR wrappers are far, far more
powerful so it made modeling the system as half object + protocol (the
protocol being a JSON transport) much easier.

I am not, however, a JS expert; I spent most of my time beating Cat + DBIC
with a stick, as usual :)
