I'm not arguing against KSS.

I'm just saying that besides KSS (which should be in a grok extension, I 
think :), we should offer a way to do simple JSON in the core, because 
KSS does require a buy-in from people that plain AJAX doesn't require. 
No matter how great or easy KSS really is.

If I come to Grok from, say, TurboGears, I can use the JSON stuff right 
away (possibly even with ToscaWidgets once we make those work in 
Zope..), but would have to think a bit more before I can start using KSS.
