This is awesome!

So I had looked at your Grid.js, put it in my environment, and tried to 
build the appropriate __package__.js file, and it worked fine. At this 
point, perhaps it would be better if you just zipped up your Dojo 
working directory and sent it to me so I can poke around. I don't know 
that there's anything I can do to debug it from here = (

I think those are getting bubbled up with a dj_throw() call, and we 
don't squelch those with isDebug = false. OTOH, isDebug=false will 
squelch in-page logging. I think the right thing to do here is to just 
fix your deployment package.

I've only tried it on FF, but it looks great.
