I just linked to this from a couple of pages in the Codex --

The latter article does discuss how to do AJAX in a plugin, though 
it's using SACK rather than JQuery. The concepts are the same (and I 
think/hope they're explained OK on that page), but if someone wants to 
rewrite the examples to use JQuery instead of SACK, that might be a 
good idea. On the other hand, there are now 4 links to JQuery/AJAX 
external refs on that page, so maybe that is good enough.
