[wp-hackers] Accessing jQuery in Core for a plugin

Thank for the tip! 

To all,

Some more questions, if I may: 

1. If I want to load two js files that need jQuery, do I simply call wp_enqueue_script twice? 

2. In terms of action hooks, should I be using wp_print_scripts? It seems to me that using 'init' or 'template_redirect' loads the scripts before the HEAD html tag. (testing on 2.7 beta2) and (as I've read elsewhere) wp_head is too late.

3. The javascript files generate a gallery in a page template. What is the cleanest way of only loading these scripts on pages that contain the gallery - ie avoid loading the scripts on every page? The gallery will be triggered by a do_action call in the template page.

Again, thanks in advance.
