I don't doubt that this is true for many applications.  However the 
quality of the out-of-the-box UI produced by ExtJS far exceeds anything 
I have available in Smalltalk and anything I could produce in a 
reasonable amount of time with Smalltalk+Scriptaculous.  Adopting 
something like ExtJS is a difficult choice to make but it certainly 
makes sense for some applications.
