    Why not use the 3kb moo.fx to do the few effects that are used on Bloxpress instead of using the behemoth that is scriptaculous?

    moo.fx:

    For the scrolling functionality:

    It certainly would make Bloxpress load faster, out of the box right now (thanks in large part to scriptaculous) is 40KB+, which is insane.

    Oh, and moo.fx is based on prototype, so it's not like there's a huge learning curve.

    agreed - and mootools is also very, very powerful yet lightweight.

    moo.fx however doesn't have drag and drop right "out of the box" (as far as I know) though mootools can handle that.
