Yeah, I was wondering about that.  Why are we trying to out-think 
browser caching?  Using slim libraries seems like a good idea, and 
including only what you need on a per-page basis seems like a good idea, 
but wasting (even minimal) server resources to rebuild different 
combinations of javascript that will likely each be cached separately...
