Because as I began learning about internet safety and security, js has
been at the top of the list as the devil in disguise. My vote was, "No,
but plead your case as to why it's needed and ask again."

What?!? You want to add js so that we can have a cutesy interface?!?
Tell me how js is going to improve the functionality. Tell me how it's
going to fix the "backed off" problem. Tell me how it will keep 1/4 of
my files from having to be re-downloaded because of an internal error.
Tell me how it's going to help me get more than a 100kB/s throughput.
You want to improve the INTERFACE?
