[wp-hackers] Slim WordPress by way of Google Ajax API?

I've knocked up a plugin which replaces references to JS libraries in
WordPress with the corresponding files on the Google AJAX Libraries
API, where supported.

Due to several libraries in WordPress being broken into disciplines,
only the core files get replaced in these circumstances, but it may
serve as a starting point for anyone who wants to put a little more
work into it.

Find the plugin here if you're interested:
