Hi Abhi,

I passed this question on to Jonathan Rentzsch via email, and his  
response indicated that he was referring specifically to WebKit's  
failure of script.aculo.us's unit tests.  Script.aculo.us is  
relatively cutting-edge as far as JavaScript libraries go, but I am  
not sure how it ranks as far as standards-compliance goes.
