Right now there are several 'power ajax grid' plugins for AJAX toolkits, and while django has chosen not to implement ajax in the framework, the django serialization framework is a crucial component of any dynamic application. The problem is, right now the boilerplate serialization code produces json that is almost impossible to use in any traditional databinding endeavor.

from django.core import serializers
data = serializers.serialize('json', KModel.objects.all())

while supporting one framwork in the API probably isn't the way we want to go, providing a little more guidance on how to best utilize the resulting json/xml in existing toolkits for simple solutions would go a long way towards easing the learning curve on new developers.

This is outside the scope of Django and of Django's official documentation. If you'd like, though, feel free to write up a tutorial and list it on a relevant page of the Django wiki.
