Nope. In my new "Javascript Everywhere" Grand Plan For The World, I just
need a good JS interpreter, and I gotta say that I'm not likely to find
much better than what Mozilla and Google are providing in their browsers
these days.

(BTW, note that I'm not actually programming in JS, in the long run. I
might compromise with PureScript instead of the actual Haskell compiler
that compiles to JS, but it's not a huge step down from GHC.)

It almost makes me wonder if it wasn't right after all to put 'Java' in
the name of JavaScript, because it does actually seem to be taking over
a bit from Java itself in the "write-once, run anywhere" category.
