Good, thanks for taking the time to look at this.

Would it be possible to call the _javascript_ mode in Emacs
_javascript_-mode?  Is there any historical reason?

+1 -- I was just going to suggest that.  "espresso" evokes Java,
and "js2" (es4) is now moribund.  I'll make sure we fix it up once
we've integrated the modes.  (We'll probably use js- as the package
prefix, for readability and convenience.)
