Good point!

I meant mashup-stuff like google maps and such, but after I sent
the e-mail I came to think of looking up how those services do
it and stumbled over the <script>-loading trick that allows me
to do what I want.

I just put the .js files on the other site (since I control
them both) and included it from there, thus circumventing the
same origin policy. It works well for my situation.
