> It's quite likely that a move like this could be accomplished quite smoothly for users
who are meerly consumers of JavaScript components; authors of JavaScript components would
have to make some changes.
> Possibly we should code the jQuery stack from the get-go to NOT use the $() method, but
instead use j$(). That extra character to type could make all the difference is allowing a
smooth upgrade, where jQuery becomes the default, but prototype/scriptaculous can still be
> Possibly a new annotation, @PrototypeSupport for components to ensure that the Prototype
libraries are available for compatibility?
