About wp_enqueue_script() vs echo "<script>" : using
wp_enqueue_script() will allow for dependencies check and will only
load once.
Doing an echo "<script>" could result in a JS lib being included
twice, which is a waste.

if your script is a jquery plugin, just wp_enqueue_script('myscript',
'url of your script', array('jquery')) and rest assured everything
will always work.
