So, it wasn't meant to be used that way. So what? I don't see a problem
with using it anyway we want. It's not like this is a public site. We know
exactly who our audience is (like 25 people).

Clicking the go button is an extra pain in the arse.

<insert stuff about how, even though it wasn't intended to be used that
way, it's used that way all over the place and users are used to
it... maybe even expect it>

Personally, I like the javascript and think we should axe the delay. But,
it really doesn't matter. Either way is ok with me. I just don't see your
point and it hit me as just one of those things one is 'supposed' to say.
