Arcgis for Server download from service workaround

     As Arcgis for server has not a built in download shapefile(or any other format) functionality the "clip and ship" geoprocessing example is being suggested by many users and developers. However I find it quite limiting. As far as I understand, the "Extract Data" tool requires first to be run with a pre-defined set of Layers as a "Parameter" just like the "Zion" example.

     What I (and many other developers) need is a script/service that takes an Arcgis Server service as an input (or a relevant js object like featureset) and returns a shapefile (or any other format) as an output. Of course I am referring to a client web application. I am using the Javascript API but if I am not mistaken Flex developers face the same issue. Thanks.
