Ticket #1559 (closed bug: fixed)
Can no longer append script elements with a src attrib for an external domain.

When writing a plugin that grabs JSON feeds from external domains (del.icio.us for example) I need to be able to append a script element to the DOM. This is no longer possible due to the modifications to the domManip function in rev. 2428. This change forces jQuery to use $.ajax to get scripts which will fail for external domain requests because of browser security restrictions. It is easy to go back to pure DOM methods to append these script elements, but I believe that jQuery should be able to deal with this. The following code worked in 1.1.3, but no longer works in 1.1.4.
Note: The $.SCRIPT function is from Michael Geary's Easy DOM Creation plugin ( http://mg.to/2006/02/27/easy-dom-creation-for-jquery-and-prototype)
I should have a patch available for review shortly.
