It means one thing --- we have to layer our marketing as well. "Dojo is
small and performant, it has all you want in one simple file. And it can
scale up as much as you want it as soon as your application is ready for
the prime time. International audience? We got you covered.
Accessibility? It is trivial with Dojo. Major one page web applications?
Dojo is the proven leader of scalability. Why Dojo? Because it is THE
standard library of JavaScript."

| Exactly this is what scares away a lot of people. It sounds
| way too big. Where is the one small file?
|   "Where I can just get started, once I like it I read the docs"
| and so on, that is at least what lets the people use jQuery ...

| one file library, but that's the initial hurdle ...
| Just my 2 cents
