Handling of binary data in standard and cross-domain xmlhttprequests
Google gears supports binary data (GET and post) in xmlhttprequests <http://code.google.com/apis/gears/api_httprequest.html#HttpRequest>
Having a similar functionality with the added value of doing it across domains would be a great addition to YBP.

Thanks for posting,
Providing access to binary data would be easy enough to do - make the body available as a file handle.
As far as cross domain, I wonder what your favorite proposal is for cross domain http requests? Security model is what's interesting here...
