In using the scriptpreprocessor introduced in Bug 80992 and Bug 104384, I found I could succeed with trivial preprocessors but not real JS to JS compilers.

The problem is two-fold: 
1) the environment of the preprocessor is not like any web page: the compiler source must be inside of a function body, not a global scope and the compiler cannot reference console or window.
2) Compile and run time errors are not reported, but result in silently ignoring the preprocessor.

Discovering the first set of issues without the second is pretty much impossible.
