Speaking of which, has anyone actually checked to see if such scripts 
are allowed? It seems from the Apple Terms of Service ( 
http://www.apple.com/legal/terms/site.html ) linked from 
http://www.apple.com/trailers/ that it's not allowed:

or circumvent the navigational structure or presentation of the Site or

Did anyone actually contact Apple to request permission?
