thanks for the added documentation.
In the meantime, I've been busy with my own JS test application (not 
using pypy yet :-(   ). If you have some time on your hand, you could 
check out http://codespeak.net/svn/user/stephan/hacks/webapp
which, if nothing else, contains a working JsonRpc implementation.
Just run 'python examplewebapp.py' and point your browser to localhost:8000.
The only dependency is on 'simplejson' (MochiKit is included)

Anyway, I'd like to see some widget stuff working, so one could maybe 
integrate / expand the pyjamas stuff or write our own.
