Before we close on this, let me validate one more thing independently of the JS version. Are we going to have trouble when trying to expose these interfaces in C++? Not sure about other compilers and IDL processing tools, but I'm playing around with Visual Studio 2010 and while the COM IDL compiler will take "delete" as an interface member, my C++ compiler really doesn't like it. As far as I know there is no standard syntax to indicate that a symbol wasn't meant to be a keyword in C++, so having "delete" (or other C++ keywords for that matter) would be problematic. Am I missing something?
