I would sure like to see a more comprehensive error-handling
capability in the language. Something that would let me bind handlers
to errors along the lines of Lisp's: http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node/1544
Because the most common use of JS is in a web browser, and because
your JS can be entered 'randomly' (in response to user events), it
would be very nice if there were an in-language way to specify a
default handler binding for error classes.
This issue plagues ActionScript as well: http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FP-444
