Prototype.js is on my todo / toexamine list for sometime.
I have downloaded and used it but I want to deeper look into the code
to get some inspiration. (don't get me wrong, I respect the hardwork
put on it and I won't steal anything -- it's just examining how
someone does someting common may pop some ideas in your mind)

Regarding the closure, memory leak etc. issue; you may want to look at
my recent article and test results, if you haven't seen them already:
