I believe it just wouldn't suffer the same problems - it needs to
observe the JS-visible stuff, which DOM objects expose normally, so it
can just hook those.  Alternately, it can be specialized to handle DOM
stuff correctly even with their craziness.  I'm not familiar with the
implementations of it.
