So far, the best script I've seen regarding serving JS (and CSS) is to
be found here:
Handles 304, Etags, browsers' inconsistencies etc.. It concatenates
and gzip stuff, reducing both the number of queries and the bandwidth
used, with a minimal CPU overhead

I implement something based on this on every site & theme I do now,
it's really great
