Well, that's why I mentioned this in my initial mail:
(the python to javascript translator part)

Of course I know how to make some AJAX to in Zope for some specific 
application. But I wanted to know if some of the core Zope developers had ever 
thought about a more generic approach. 

For example I am sure that having this "python to javascript translator" and 
objects like PythonScripts that would have a "javascript" view is something 
that would make AJAX enabled pages development on Zope much easier (just a 
matter of including the JS library and then make some python code).

That is a macro call. There is no difference. It just that the macro
includes the HTML needed to suck in the JS library you use.

Thare has been discussions and efforts to make a library where you can
write python code and get Ajax out, yes. It is very non-trivial. :)
