Extend the jQuery core to support the delay of an event in such a way it will be called only once evene if it is raised multiple times within a given timeframe..

Typicly used with 'keyup' in ajax search. Perhaps somthing like .trigger('event',delayInMs,data).

Just a suggestion... :)

Essentially this is like a debouncing operation on a button, and sounds like a good idea for a plugin. If the plugin was widely used it might be considered for inclusion into core, but the first step is to demonstrate the need for the functionality.
