Hmm, not sure, except for one thing: if you and Victor and all the other 
original BSF developers are active in the BSF discussion groups, then 
the impression that it might be dead is not possible. Therefore I am 
very happy that a) Victor is back and gets back to messages of 
newcomers/developers who seek further information and b) that you - one 
of the most influential BSF developers (I assume at least) - are posting.


About "death": among other things, there is a student at the University 
of Augsburg, Germany, who has been working on the task of using BSF in 
order to allow any of the BSF supported scripting languages to be used 
in the context of DOM/DHTML-scripting. Or with other words: allow 
DOM/DHTML scripting for *any* BSF supported language on practically any 
browser on any operating system (he tested Mozilla/Netscape on Linux and 
Windows, as well as MS InternetExplorer on Windows and will test Opera). 
[It is still beyond my mind why the browser creators only supported 
JavaScript, except for Microsoft which extended scripting support to any 
WSH-scripting language.]



P.S.: W.r.t. performance issues: so far (given the ever increasing 
HW-resources) I have not hit real performance problems.
