I'll be happy to give you a little shove in the right direction ...

The parser and evaluation engine in JScript are in pretty good shape for 
ECMAScript 3, but someone needs to start investigating what would be required 
for ECMAScript 4 and the MS-specific extensions that make up full-blown 
JScript.  The file "pnetlib/doc/JScript-internals.txt" in the CVS tree 
describes the basic structure of the code.

The biggest area that needs work right now is the builtin objects and classes.  
Object, Function, Array, String, etc, etc, etc.  They are all described in 
ECMA-262 (reference in the above file).  What isn't described is how they map 
down to C# - I will update the "JScript-internals.txt" file shortly to 
describe that.

The most annoying part is that we need to extract the API details from the 
Rotor code, as there is no real MS documentation available.  I'll see if I 
can cobble something together using csdoc to give us a "JScript status" page 
similar to "pnetlib status".
