RespondsToParent
================

Adds responds_to_parent to your controller to respond to the parent document of your page.
Make Ajaxy file uploads by posting the form to a hidden iframe, and respond with
RJS to the parent window.

        render :update do |page|
          page << "alert($('stuff').innerHTML)"
        end
      end
    end
