OK, so I don't think making our code unreadable is the correct  
answer.  I also don't believe that our coding style is causing us to  
be 4 times the size of Prototype.

Bottom line, functions need to be dropped or moved.  I find it a  
little concerning at the general unwillingness to cut functions.

So I hate to be corny but;
