Does aikido contain anything technically that is unique amongst martial arts?

Funny that the vast majority of votes say 'yes' on the technically unique part, but it seems that more responses in discussion lean toward no. I don't know all of aikido, nor do I know all of every other martial art. Intuitively I suspect that in terms of technique; aikido isn't unique.
I have seen ikkyo through sankyo (sankyo even in greco-roman wrestling)as well as kotegaeshi, shihonage, a similar koshinage, and others in other forms.
Does anyone know of a technique that aikido posesses in it's repetoire that does not exist in aikijujutsu?
