I haven't looked at the GLCS setup, but the libjs.so and libjs.a are
also built (and the shell is linked against them).

I have RPMs of JS that I could update, I suppose.

The Mozilla-the-browser docs are pretty bad, yeah.  OK, they're a
disaster, but I understand that they're working to improve them.  The JS
engine's docs are pretty decent, though a _little_ out of date.

http://www.mozilla.org/js/ are those docs.

We should probably take more detailed JS-doc/impl/embedding questions
off-list, if you decide to go farther.  (I won't be personally offended
or anything if you don't go with Spidermonkey, it just sounded like you
might be avoiding something that could work well for you.)
