What is the actual objective of using interactive javascript?  (Sorry, just recently joined the list again)  From the visitors perspective, much of the content is static to them.  Its the editor that is editing content - so in the long run, does using these libraries save you or them any time, or is it there just to be flashy?  I hope that actual content rendering isn't littered with javascript, otherwise it will completely kill the SEO advantage that geeklog has by default.

If this is a complete rework of the framework, I'd say save this for GL2/AptitudeCMS.  Lots of us are used to the way the code is now...

that's my non-developer 2 cents.  :P
