Dojo can be used with AFL or BSD licenses at your choice; jQuery, with
MIT or GPL licenses at your choice; Google's Closure Library, with
Apache 2.0 license (Google's Closure Compiler, Closure Templates and
Closure Inspector are also all Apache 2.0-licensed). So I'd say all of
these Javascript frameworks are "completely free software" (so is
dojango -- "New BSD" license, like Django), unless your definition of
"completely free" is somewhat peculiar.
