This is the kind of response I was looking for when bringing up this topic.
And maybe we all should be taking a tone of suggesting additions, rather
than filing complaints. I apologize if I got that snowball rolling in the
wrong direction.

At any rate, I think this is a good approach. All of those convenience
functions that we know and love will probably live best in dojox. If they're
not in any of the dojo namespaces, then we'll probably ended up rewriting
them ourselves, cursing while we do it. So, I think a lot of dojo users will
be happy to see these types of convenience functions in dojox. To most
people, I don't think it will matter whether their in dojo or dojox, just
that they're there.
