AJAX with Python (using simplejson) and MochiKit is trivial.

Complex Javascript interfaces using DOM/CSS manipulations are *easier* with 
MochiKit, but they can still be a bastard to debug. I highly recommend using 
Firefox with the Web Developer plugin and the MochiKit's logging facility.

You still won't see runtime errors inside complex Javascript programs but you 
will be able to reasonably get feedback from your running program.
