I will then check it in to one of those; seriously, I can't decide which
location would be more proper as a home. The z3base seems more generic to
me, however the other ajax stuff is already in z3lab. (except AZAX, which
has the "kukit" part stored on codespeak.)

I am facing the same decision at where to bring in the "jsonserver"
(a.k.a. json-rpc) product which would be a complete zope2-zope3 product

I agree but if we change the name we should do it right now. What name

I personally would also be against "jtal". "ctal" was meant to stand for
"client tal" but indeed it might not be the finest choice.
