To put it even stronger: the only way to get jQuery in would be to 
remove all other libraries except for ExtJS and modernizr (plus of 
course custom code).

Not to discourage you, but after the first suggestions to bring in 
jQuery it was already mentioned that we don't want yet another JS 
library added to the core.

You can also consider it an extra challenge and a demonstration of how 
to use jQuery. Someone needs to track down where prototype, 
scriptaculous and who-knows-what-else are used and replace the code with 
new and shiny jQuery :-)

I've also understood that ExtJS can use jQuery as base library. This 
would mean that we could drop the internal base library of ExtJS and get 
an even more light-weight backend.

Can't wait to see the results of your work!
