  Description     : JavaScript "compression" system

ShrinkSafe is a JavaScript "compression" system. It can typically reduce the
size of your scripts by a third or more, depending on your programming style.
Many other tools also shrink JavaScript files, but ShrinkSafe is different.
Instead of relying on brittle regular expressions, ShrinkSafe is based on
Rhino, a JavaScript interpreter. This allows ShrinkSafe to transform the source
of a file with much more confidence that the resulting script will function
identically to the file you uploaded.
Best of all, ShrinkSafe will never change a public variable or API. That means
that you can drop the compressed version of your JavaScript into your pages
without changing the code that uses it.
