Perhaps not a complete re-implementation of Grunt. But there is a
clear desire for a JavaScript compiler: a program that takes several
input JavaScript files, and compiles them to a single generated file.

Can we come up with a specification of that job, sufficient to package
in Debian for use where upstream packages use Grunt to “browserify”

Ideally it should not be based on Grunt source, so that it's clear to
implement just this tool without entanglement of existing programs not
yet in Debian.
