Repetition javascript library comment 000

MochiKit could certainly be used in those other contexts; the only difficulty might be the packaging and loading system, which is quirky in Javascript, and what tools that do exist are usually tied closely to their environment, e.g., a web browser. But MochiKit's things like iteration, adaptation, comparisons, etc., are all core Javascript things with no relation to the web.

MochiKit will eventually end up getting refactored and tested such that it works in some non-browser environments, but that's not an immediate plan of mine -- unless I end up writing Yet Another Goddamned JavaScript Unit-Testing Library.

Test.Simple is OK, but the implementation is ugly, non-portable, and could behave better in Safari. I could do better, but I really need to look at what Dojo is doing first as they also have their own unit test library.
