Script preloading is already way overdue. We can preload images, CSS, even
video, and I'd really love to formalize how to do so with scripts as well. 

I'm not sure why this would have to be more complicated than preloading an
image. If I do:

    var img = new Image();
    img.src = "foo.png";

This preloads my image and (I think) keeps it in memory. Is that memory ever
cleaned up if I don't use the image? What about with videos? How about
stylesheets that are disabled?
