You might consider using jsonserver (JSON-RPC) for the ajax-y
communication.  Soon, JSON-RPC (1.1-specification) will have native
support for keyword (named) parameters, which provides a python-ish feel
for the javascript calls.

I have a public example (not open-sourced, sorry - line-of-business app)
of jsonserver in action at http://www1.vtdata.org . It's fast and does
the async communication with little fuss.

jsonserver is available at http://zif.hill-street.net/jsonserver
