This is simply wrong; "return" has a specific meaning in JS (returning a

Someone should tell that to Mozilla:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/JavaScript/Guide/Values,_variables,_and_literals

If no one minds, I might get started on a JS style guide. It will be the
first time I've tried to write such a thing, but I'll do some research on
some existing style guides (like those from jQuery, DOJO, and Google) to
see what they have to say. If anyone else has suggestions on other good
style guides to research, please let me know.
