XMLHttpRequest Now Made Easier

I came across a post (via) in the SitePoint blog announcing JPSpan 0.4. Here's what the page has to say about JPSpan:

JPSPAN provides tools to "hook up" PHP and Javascript, for the purpose of fetching data from PHP into a web page which has already loaded, without reloading the entire page. It allows you to call remote PHP objects as local Javascript objects.
Looks interesting. I always thought I'd have to write a wrapper function to use the JavaScript XMLHttpRequest functions with PHP in conjunction with say Web Services, but JPSpan should help me achieve just that. This looks like one of those tools to keep handy.
