Yeah. I also hear plenty of the opposite complaint -- people who don't 
like the way JavaScript does things (this is especially common with 
programmers more familiar with languages like C++ or Java), and who wish 
we wouldn't use JS idioms in the APIs so that they could use JS more like 
their favourite language.

JS is used by a lot of people, and there's a lot of opinions about how it 
should work.
