Not sure if this subject has been discussed before, but I did a quick  
"find" on the dojo files and couldn't find any functions that seemed

Has anyone considered adding an onDomLoad type of function to the

Of course it shouldn't replace onload triggers, but it could add  
something to page load - which I know is a big deal in the "Web 2.0"  
world. ;-)
