Looks great - does nothing :(
using IE5.5 nothing I click on the form has any effect - submissions are made 
- sometimes, but still nothing changes.
sorry - this implementation isnt generic enough for me maybe too much 
javascript or something, but google's ajax toys work for me!
Think I'll stick with the non-superdooper ajaxed chiba xforms implementation 
for now.

also - on another note,
I'm with Elliotte, If you've gotta have another plugin, then its probably too hard.
