From a shark sample on my 100%-cpu-consuming Namoroka:

	2.9%	2.9%	libmozjs.dylib	JS_DHashTableEnumerate
	0.0%	2.7%	libmozjs.dylib	 js_PurgeScriptFragments(JSContext*, JSScript*)
	0.0%	2.7%	libmozjs.dylib	  js_DestroyScript
	0.0%	2.7%	libmozjs.dylib	   JS_EvaluateUCScriptForPrincipals
	0.0%	2.7%	XUL	    nsJSContext::EvaluateString(nsAString_internal const&, void*, nsIPrincipal*, char const*, unsigned int, unsigned int, nsAString_internal*, int*)
	0.0%	2.7%	XUL	     nsGlobalWindow::RunTimeout(nsTimeout*)
	0.0%	2.7%	XUL	      nsGlobalWindow::TimerCallback(nsITimer*, void*)
	0.0%	2.7%	XUL	       nsTimerImpl::Fire()

This needs some dedicated API, since we do not want to blow out the cache due to any and all JS_Evaluate*Script* API calls, only ones for programs likely to be repeatedly compiled and executed (setTimeout, setInterval with string first arg).

Who will take this bug? It is crying for a fix.
