Yes it's already AJAXiefied, it also already uses JSON which would  
ease the switch.

I do not discourage the lib itself but more the browsers as their JS  
engines are leaking... The lib itself is great IMO

I remember from the dev days this year that Sebastian and Ingmar  
wanted to start implementing dialogs on layers so that the rest of  
the browser window would be blocked/disabled/dimmed until the dialog  
has been answered. This would also be possible with this lib.

Other than that I do not see a reason why we shouldn't at least use  
the tree component as it really improves usability when dragging and
