I sort of forgot, I will keep the dojo codebase up to date with the
latest versions in the future (no guarantee that there wont be a
refactoring, but the dojo guys handle that pretty well with a
deprecation mechanism), so that we always have a good maintainable
javascript foundation which we do not have to invest time in and can
send bugs back to have them fixed.

I guess that is the best solution for now for all the javascript mess we
are in (blend of lots of self written or forked code, some kupu stuff,
some stuff which is based on prototype, some stuff namespaced some stuff
not etc...).

I do not know how this will work out with all the Oracle stuff coming in
 in the future, but for now we need a solution which we can build upon
which is as less intrusive as possible so that we do not have clashes
with other javascript libraries (namely the existing codebase and the
ADF codebase) in the future, and probably dojo is the best bet we have
on this at the current time.
But at least we do not have any conflicts due to the non intrusiveness
of Dojo.

I can recommend to use dojo and do not try to build too much on
prototype anymore or keep a warning in the usage of the prototype based
