I'm willing to do it, if someone will just tell me what 
we really want it to do (as opposed to me having to go
through and get the recipe working and/or try and figure it
out from the current AJAX-based code).

I don't want to know the technical details of how it works;
I just want to know things like "when Alice does X, then
Y happens" and "Bob sees Z on his display".
