Yes, it is executed as any top-level JavaScript code when the script is 
first executed in a scope. But:

As I'm looking at the code, I believe there might actually be a problem 
with the script include functionality. This used to work fine, but I 
had to change the behavior some time ago to allow scripts to be shared. 
It may be the case that cocoon.load() is broken in its current state. 
I'll check this behavior and let you know if it is still correct; if 
it's not, I'll remove it from

The safest thing to do right now though is to split your code among 
multiple JS files and include them all in the sitemap:

   <map:flow language="JavaScript">
       <map:script src="script1.js"/>
       <map:script src="script2.js"/>
       <map:script src="script3.js"/>
       <map:script src="script4.js"/>

This should work just fine.
