Thanks for the hint. I guess I'll need it more in actions than in views.
Having certain js libraries available in actions certainly would make
things easier.

BTW, to make it easier (for me) to play around with actions (and design
documents) I wrote a small JS script (requires Rhino) that transforms
javascript objects into JSON objects (using json2.js), converting
functions to strings in the process. I attached it; perhaps someone
things it's useful.
