I was just going to say the same thing then I saw this email :)  It  
will be interesting to see how it evolves, it provides a very nice  
look and feel for a quick mapping application that doesn't need any  
server-side dependencies.

Personally, I find Ext quite heavy compared to Jx + MooTools but I  
haven't enough knowledge of it to state a strong opinion.  I get the  
impression that it is not that easy to customize the look and feel  
either, but I could be wrong - and it looks pretty sweet to start  
with ...
