[pypy-dev] New Javascript parser in the works

I started development of the javascript parser, based on the  
pythongrammar.txt file on parsing test dir. The thing is still in its  
infancy, but I just wanted to say that I am working on it, and would  
love any help. It is living in users/santagada/newjsparser for now...  
will move to js when it is at least kind of working.

About the parsing lib I have some questions (should be asking cfbolz  
but I don't seem to find him on irc lately):
	* ParsingError should print something like lineno: self.lineno+1  
collum: self.collum+1 (I know there is a pretty error function, but  
	* IGNORE and friends, how do I make then work?
	* I don't know why when it recognizes something (or I think it  
should) it just gives me list index out of bounds (I will check what  
is happening, but if someone know why it would be better).

About the grammar:
	* based on python grammar, so automatic semicolon insertion is OFF.  
You have optional semicolons at the end of lines though
	* No regex literals (ahh someday maybe, i'm not really interested in  
	* Lot's of work to be done still :)
