True. A secondary upside of javascript, however, is that it makes for a
more snappy response time (since there are no additional downloads
required). In an interactive "here's a bunch of questions that you may
want to click through quickly", that's a *good* thing.

I think adding javascript for interactivity to our website is a good
idea and we shouldn't be afraid of it. No, we shouldn't make it a
requirement, but that's not what this is.

Could you people please use IRC like normal people?!?
