[Vtigercrm-developers] extend Validation engine (Ajax)

How can I implement an ajax-based validation routine?
For example, I want to check that when someone enters or changes a phone
number in a record, that the phone number is *unique* in vtiger.
I have my validation routine calling an Ajax action and I can
interrogate the database and return true or an error string (with where
the duplicate record is).
This is where I have got to but obviously it isn't working:
What I can't figure out is how to make the validate engine work with Ajax...
I've looked at the checkDuplicateName function in Vtiger_Helper_Js() and
am trying to work out how this is used by Account's Detail.js but I'm a
bit (very) confused. I don't really understand this jQuery.Deferred() stuff.
Anyone have a cluebat handy?
