Yeah, that sounds about right. I've used JSO to play with, but not written
anything 'proper' in it so don't know how good it is first-hand. However,
there's no easy 'getting started' documentation, and the examples are
lengthy and uncommented.

I'd agree with that, except that I've got an inexplicable and irrational
soft spot for Yaja. :)
