XSP pages only need recompilation if the _code_ changes, not the data
within the code. If you can write the page in such a way that you're not
actually changing the XSP page itself, you won't need to recompile.

As far as I am aware, XSP itself is language independant, so there's
nothing to stop you using rhino or whatever to integrate ECMA/JavaScript
into the XSP engine.
