New JavaScript engine

I notice in the archives that to at least some extent JavaScript can be
embedded in Real Basic (apparently only on the Mac side):
http://www.latenightsw.com/freeware/JavaScriptOSA/howtoREALbasic.html

But also at Mozilla.org I see that the entire JavaScript engine can be
embedded in an application.
http://www.mozilla.org/js/spidermonkey/

Would this be possible within a Real Basic application?

This isn't exactly what you think it is. This is still AppleScript,
it's just using the JavaScript syntax thanks to the JS OSA plugin. To
do this you have to have installed said OSA.

perhaps if someone bundled the JS runtime into a plugin... I think that
would rock, I'd love to use JS in my applications, if the runtime
interface was easy enough. , it's somewhat less daunting then RBScript,
which not many end users know. Anyone who's worked with websites has
used JavaScript.
