As I am a big fan of jQuery, and use it for everything (including
making and serving breakfast), I say, what an excellent idea this is.

Now, there is a project called jMaps (see
http://github.com/digitalspaghetti/jmaps/) which may have some work
already done... at least in concept. It wraps jQuery around Gmaps API.
Also, I once created a rubber-band zoom dingus using jQuery. I will
have to dig it out of the attic.
