Ext.Direct and Grails

I just started a new Grails plugin that will (in theory) allow Grails service's method to be called using Ext.Direct JavaScript client. Obviously I've looked at existing libraries to do this (the directjngine and extdirect4java) but as far as my taste goes they are not groovy enough. My thinking is that Groovy allows for typeless declarations for parameters and JavaScript does the same. So additional metadata (like annotations in case of the 2 engines mentioned above) should not be needed. All is there in the code already.

We'll see where this will take me :)
