Details

It's valid in Javascript to do:

function(x) {
  if (x) return 42;
  else return "blah";
}

However GCLI forces return types to be interpreted in the same way because it defines a returnValue to specify the type.

Sometimes it is useful to provide the data in more than one format - see multi-part mime and the handling of clipboard data (although there could be better ways to achieve this).
