I'd be interested in helping with this project. In my case my pet
javascript peeve is an a streaming audio site whose audio links
are hidden behind javascript objects.  I'd like to be able to 
translate the live feed links into standard html.

Perhaps the first step is to locate an online copy of the javascript
protocol specification.
