JS security is not more difficult (or simple) than PHP security. JS
allows you to send requests to the server. As long as the server side
is secure you are 90% there. The only thing you have to worry about
after that is someone intercepting your requests. Not a huge concern
really but something to think about. You can pretend AJAX is just a
form of webservices from Geeklog's point of view if you wanted.

Technically no, but sending more than one JS library to the client
are bandwidth and page load time issues.
I still say mootools is more Geeklogish but I can't fault choosing
jQuery over it. I just associate jQuery with glitz and mootools with
substance over style.
