Hurry.jquery kinda depends on jquery, but even that could be worked
around (I think) in the same manner hurry.extjs does, if it does proof
to be problematic after all.

Grok does not depend in any way on hurry.jquery. Your application will
only depend on hurry.jquery if you choose to use it.

versus hurry.jquery are correct.
