Nice trick! I tested it and found out that it doesn't work correctly in 
Hotjava and Opera 3, who support includes but give precedence to the scripts 
in the pages (then again, who cares?)

I put it on my JavaScript site 
(http://www.xs4all.nl/~ppk/js/index.html?placejs.html). Since you discovered 
it, you get eternal and undying fame in the form of a link (unless Jeff 
wants to claim precedence). Please tell me where the link should lead.
