I certainly didn't say, and I'm not sure that I implied that there  
shouldn't be stock widgets. However my vested interest in Dojo is not  
to build a killer toolkit for intranets, and I'm not about to spend  
my weekends making a generic grid. I want a nice JS toolkit which  
allows me to build Cool Shit(TM).

I gather the thing to draw from this is that the widget system should  
be an optional part of Dojo, which it currently is.
