Cool! But. gosh, I hate to rain on anyone's parade, yet I think it was 
kinda decided yesterday to focus on solidifying JS instead than Groovy. 
Don't get me wrong, I like Groovy a lot and I sure appreciate your 
work, yet I have this feeling that committing it now would just confuse 
users even more. Flow is already feeling like quicksand, adding yet 
another language without being able to guarantee solid contracts is 
risky business. I'd much rather see a bulletproof JS/Java foundation 
before delving into a partially working Groovy implementation. So, this 
is a sad -0 here.
