pardon my general ignorance of AJAX and JS, but what does "degrade"
mean in this context?  normally, i'd think "code that degrades" isn't
something to cheer about. ;) if there's a quick 1 sentance
explaination (or a link), i'd appreciate it.

otherwise, thanks for this contribution.  from what i can gather, this
seems like it could help a lot of module UI's out there.

here's one: i'm thinking of event-enabled nodes... when you enter the
start time, the end time could be automatically pre-filled to be some
configurable event duration (e.g. 1 hour) into the future from the
start time.  that'd be a nice feature.  don't know if this requires
activeselect or not (see http://drupal.org/node/25618), but maybe
activeselect would make it easier to do...
