You are, of course, absolutely right. In fact writing client code in general
is outside of the scope but it's good for consistency (acting as a
poor-man's test suite) and both helps our users and enhances the standard.
If we're writing code at all it may as well be consistent, and support by
other adaptors like libcloud, deltacloud & simplecloud would also be
useful. Mike & I have just got the ball rolling on this one - Mike or
someone else interested in Javascript can take it from here.

Nice stuff though :-)
