In something like BiddingPond, that system could make sense, given that it allows for an automated intermediary to escrow the auction, and I'm sure the people over in gambling would go for it. Currency exchanges could theoretically integrate it, although they probably use RPC.

Ah, right — so it would be more of an RPC interface to the bitcoind than a client-facing site. Yes, I've considered this, and it's a good idea… And if there were 32 hours in the day, I'd be all over implementing it.

Another try. This time I had some problem with the transaction, but it eventually went through. After that, the page gave me pop-up saying  "GOING", and after I clicked "OK", nothing happened. I still see the message
Waiting for confirmations.
This may take up to 5 minutes.
Please do not close this dialog.
and the spinning thingy. 5 minutes passed long ago, of course.

A couple of questions...

1.  What happens if the user clicks out of the payment window after sending the coinage, but before receiving confirmation?  Does my website still eventually get confirmation of the payment through the URL handler?

2.  Is there any way to have user-enterable text be included in the callback post of an offer?  The only reference for the button that I can see is an offer ID, and that obviously wouldn't allow a user to enter text.  Is there something I am missing, or is this something that could be implemented in the future?
