A side note: I suggest reserving the .js suffix for HTML (and bare native)
scripts. ECMAScript extension should use a different suffix IMO. Otherwise
there'll be clashes.

For Python, Perl etc. things are different because they only have one
central interpreter that is extended by modules. There's a clear
standard on how these are organized and statements like "import" throw
an error if a module is not available. As this mechanism is not yet
standardised in ECMAScript I think we should keep incompatible scripts
clearly separated.
