No objections as long as ExtJS is not included in the svn.zope.org. I'll 
note that ExtJS is under the GPL now (after many license changes), which 
isn't very compatible with many ZPL-based projects. I would interpret 
GPL-ed code on the client side not to make my server code automatically 
GPL as well, but the ExtJS authors explicitly do interpret it that way; 
just be warned of potential license confusions with ExtJS...

I'd also note clearly in the documentation for hurry.extjs that ExtJS 
itself is GPL and perhaps point to the ExtJS license page (if they have 
such) just to let people know what they're in for if they choose to rely 
on this for their project.

I will also would like to ban ExtJS from the grokui.* libraries for that 
reason, and would recommend against building further libraries on top of it.

All this doesn't take away from the idea that a hurry.extjs could be 
very useful to build *applications*, so by all means go ahead!
