Anybody got a character counting widget?

Just demo’d my app for marketing and they asked whether, on the big text
fields, I could give a dynamic character counter so that as they
approach the guideline maximum they’ll know. Seems like something that
could be written by looking for key click events in the text field.
Before I go writing one, though, I thought I’d check and see if anybody
knows of such a thing that already exists in a library I could use. No
sense reinventing the wheel.

I guess observe_field is overkill for this, I’d go for some simple
JavaScript:
