folks, hi,
i have some great news: i'm completely wrong about the "undefined"
thing not being caught (in browsers) - it's only if you don't have an
exception try { } block around your (entire) app that the variable
gets set to "undefined".  this is _great_.  well, i say great: firefox
raises ReferenceError, IE raises TypeError, but that's ok - i can deal
with that.
so that's one serious bugbear crossed off the list, and you didn't
have to do a thing :)
