isn't parsing the { } brackets an an overhead for the js interpreter?

I think you're contradicting yourself by saying to not use $w(),  
because it's slower, but that we should use blocks when they're not  

note that personally i think something like:

if (blah) return;

is much more readable than

if (blah) {

for the $w() thing: you _could_ build a preprocessor for your  
personal prototype copy that does a $w() -> [] conversion upfront;  
but as stated earlier in the thread, there's absolutely nothing to  
gain from this, performance-wise.
