Button_to_remote using jQuery and Rails 3

Is this possible given the button_to_remote function seems to be
defined as a Prototype helper? I’ve replaced my /public/javascripts/
rails.js with the jQuery driver.

When I try to use button_to_remote I get the error undefined method
‘button_to_remote’ for #<#Class:0x000001078d7090:0x0000010789ad20>

If this is not possible using button_to_remote, how can I accomplish
the same thing using jQuery + Rails 3.
