But you got it to run by using an off-device compile phase. Is there going
to be a W3C spec that goes along with ES4 that says that it is a server's
responsibility to query the client device, and if the client requests it, to
perform this phase before sending the information to the client? If so, then
you've got my attention -- that would work.
