One additional comment ...

If I get clever and try to wait in a while loop for AjaxRequest to set
a flag that it has completed, the browser complains that some script
is attempting to make the browser to run slow, do you want to let it
run?   IE7.

So no, I can't create a slick wait loop like that either.
