Ahhh, you got me there. i guess that wasn't a good phrasing. It should
read more like "i've seen vague anecdotal reports that #writeAttribute
isn't 100% reliable because of variations in browser attribute
writing, but have not personally seen evidence of it in my own
experience or others'." Such is how religions begin, eh?

That said, i still wanted an alternative to having to make two
function calls to serve the purpose of one. Even in the proposed
solution above, #writeAttribute is still used each time, i just don't
have to manually make that call to it. And i see Mislav's point in not
butchering #request by naming it something else. However, since
original idea (modifying the original #request to accept a url option)
is still the only one that allows me to dynamically point #request at
whatever server-script i want without an additional method call, i
still wonder IF it's problematic to do so.

Even if i used Ajax.Request and #serialize, it's still one task for
the price of two calls.

It was just a hypothetical, i'm not trying to twist anyone's arms off
over it. :)
