There is also a case of where your client will not always be the  
loaded browser you expect (FF, IE, OP) w/ XHR built in ... there are  
many smaller devices w/ non multithread requirements ... of course  
this won't always be the case ... its good to look @ things like how  
the frameworks handle the issue, ie Cake (RequestHandler) or  
something similar which give you options on how to process it.

Im just waiting to see what scheme the open RDBMS come up w/ to  
handle XHR requests on there own (ala no application layer @ all).   
Exists already Im sure.
