Subject Re: one file to rule them all: some post 2.x thoughts

A small variation of 1)

1) Ship all platform-specific JavaScript in one file and sort it out at
runtime. Provide the option to build the JavaScript for a specific
platform. Basically, a debug vs production file, although most apps would
happily use the debug in production.
