When first joining a mailing list, it's generally good etiquette to
peruse the list archives prior to posting; not only to get a feel for
the community, but also to ensure your question or statement hasn't been
brought up in the past.


As for the Javascript requirement...

I suggest switching 'require' for 'intelligently utilize'. I can see how
the use of Javascript and AJAX-type functionality can make the FProxy
experience much better; however, there is a lot to be said for
gracefully degrading to support user agents that are unwilling or unable
to execute javascript, such as Lynx, or possibly Curl. Likewise, since
this is still highly experimental software, there is at least a slight
probability of a bug or a maliciously crafted insert slipping a bit of
Javascript through the content filter, so having the option to disable
it completely (at the expense of a slower or less-featureful FProxy
experience) might be beneficial for those truly paranoid.
