Yes, some folks don't know, but if you put a callback item in  
hook_menu for your module, and then have that function do direct  
prints, rather than php calls, you can get a very similar affect.   
Agreed its a matter of style, but I like this approach better than  
bootstrapping drupal directly.

This is the way that most of the AJAX calls in drupal work.
