Ajaxified Body: Now with Back Button and Bookmarking Support

I uploaded a new version of Ajaxified Body to its demo site a few minutes ago. Changelog:

Added RSH for history and bookmarking and changed to use Prototype and Scriptaculous from Google's CDN.

I found Really Simple History easy to use but poorly documented. Brad Neuberg's AJAX: How to Handle Bookmarks and Back Buttons article was the one that got me over the learning curve. Hat tip to Ignacio for the RSH suggestion.

Let me know if you see any issues or have suggestions for improvement.

Thanks for using RSH; sorry it was hard to find documentation! Best, Brad Neuberg

I was wondering about google indexing, and any way of making it work with this.. Is there anything I could change in the code?

@Tom - if Google has JavaScript disabled when crawling, everything should work fine. Otherwise, you could add some logic to the ajaxifying-links process to detect crawlers.
