Totally agree, V8 in particular. The main reason for focussing on JS is
that the language itself is entirely async which fits in nicely with
Qt's signal/slot async event driven potential. Personally, I have no
interest in using anything but Javascript, with PHP as a sync based
fallback because of the huge amount of "legacy" web apps available.
