OK,  so Mr. Noob has made a lot of progress, but has found that when
he makes an Ajax.Request(), the response is not set into the
javascript variables until after a certain amount of time, which
though small, is significant.

Some knuckleheads might well be provoked to say, "Hey, I didn't get my
data.  There's a bug."

There is no bug, but there is a pain in the ...

Javascript does not have a sleep function and  using  setTimeOut in
this situation is folly because you can not proceed with the code in
any semblance until  AjaxRequest full completes returning the data.
setTimeOut will only cause one code element to deley.

How're the Prototype/Scriptaculous gurus handling this?
