Hi Ivan,

The following is completely irrelevant to everything...but I'm waiting
for something to finish running. :)

He he. Let's hope that this silly Ajax craze dies down soon, then, hey? ;)

Actually, I think JavaScript is ideal for this kind of thing. I began
my programming life as an assembler programmer, then moved on to C,
then C++, with a bit of Java on the side. And I have to say that being
able to create objects without declaring classes first (sacrilege!) is
damned handy, and makes for a very quick development cycle.

However, it's really difficult to see the evolution of your code
afterwards, since morphing an anonymous class into another anonymous
class is nigh on impossible to track, so I don't think I'd like to
travel on a plane that was using JavaScript for its systems. :)

Regards,

Mark
