I find it very hard to find a mode that fits my demands even for ES3
(I'm not an emacs user, but I haven't found an editor with a good ES
mode at all), not to speak of ES4. Particularly if you're using a lot
of function expression, object literals or array literals.
In a way, I'd be more comfortable with a Scheme/LISP based mode
(except expressions aren't necessarily contained in parentheses and
there's statements syntax to consider as well) than a Java or C based
mode, but there's not many modes that combines a good handling of
statement-based code with good handling of expression-based code,
especially when the expressions can contain statements such as
function expressions.
