On a second thought, I think that I would likely use the script myself even if the boilerplate was simpler. That's not all that's needed - you also need at least <div id="console"></div>, "var successfullyParsed = true;", and a few structural elements. Typing all that is difficult - and if you copy/paste, it doesn't really matter how much boilerplate there is.

Also, making the boilerplate more complicated and dynamic can unexpectedly affect tests.
