[PROPOSAL] Tag turns a collection into a javascript function to populate select.

IMHO, this particular case is too specialised. On the other hand, I think there 
is definitely room for a more general JavaScript-centric tag library that could 
ultimately solve the same problem, and many more to boot.

Essentially, what this is about is serialising Java collections to JavaScript 
source code. While that may sound esoteric, it's actually something I'm deeply 
involved with at my "day job" right now. Anyone who has tried to build highly 
interactive web apps can probably see where this is going, too...

Despite the fact that I'm responding in Bugzilla, I think it would be better if 
we take this discussion to the taglibs-dev list and brainstorm about what a 
comprehensive JavaScript-focussed taglib might look like, as opposed to 
individual special-purpose tags.
