Any hints/opinions on what those drawbacks might be?  I know literally
almost nothing about JS.  I worked thru a short generic tutorial a couple
years ago, but nothing like these libraries I see people talking about
now like jquery, angular, ext, and so on.  Hence my hesitation at adding
another learning curve on top of python and the various libraries needed
for this first 'real' project.
