I have totally changed my position about the dojo plugin. I think
Struts should have some ajax functionality for the most commom use
cases, but I think we just picked the wrong ajax framework.

Making the tags work with the latest version of dojo would take a lot
of work (pretty much scratch all the hacks we have put together so far
to make it work). What is really frustrating is that after spending
time getting everything to work on one version, all hell breaks loose
on the next "minor" release.

The dojo plugin is a lot better in 2.1 that it was on 2.0.x, but by
the time that 2.1 goes GA dojo will be on version 97 or so :). I would
say we get the plugin out of the code base and set it up in googlecode
and give access to anyone that wants to maintain it.

Jeromy is working on the YUI plugin and I will give it a hand, maybe
that will be a better option in the future.
