most of those aren't relevant to bugzilla (task runner, client-side 
asset builder, build system, testing, complete frameworks, ...).

modern javascript web development generally doesn't mesh well with large 
legacy applications, and i'm concerned that taking a step back at this 
stage to evaluate a large rewrite of the UI would not result in timely 

our immediate need is to determine if we should continue the yui3 path, 
or move to a jquery based widget library.
if we decide to move to jquery, then we should be talking about widget 
libraries, not wholesale rewrites.
