Working on T5 Ajax Support

This is stuff people have waited impatiently for going on six months or more, and it's starting to come together. I'm continuing to work using Prototype/Scriptaculous and put together a simple Autocompleter mixin. I've been working on a more general Ajax operations, wherein a link on the page will trigger a component event and the return value there (usually a Block) will be used to update a portion of the page (demarked by a Zone component).

I'm also simplifying a bunch of APIs that got twisted up for PageTester (Kent Tong's unit testing layer for T5). ActionResponseGenerator is going away which makes a lot of code and testing easier and simpler.

Right now the only thing slowing me down is some soreness in my left hand.

Try Souzaphone Hero. A little easier.

Still a ways to go, I think there will be at least one more preview release. Then the likely course is to create a "stable" release and put it up for a while, if it prooves itself useful, we vote it the official release.
