Let me first of all stress that I'm not trying to bust on JQuery here. JQuery does something that needs to be done, and it does it just about as well as can be done given the tool-set browsers have collectively placed at our disposal.
With that said, I'm going to go ahead and pimp the reglib way of doing things, by which I mean declarative, over the load-traverse-modify methodology, which JQuery makes so easy.
The demo page linked below has two identical interactive widgets; one wired up using JQuery, and the other wired up using reglib.
The page is rigged like a science experiment, with a control followed by several tests in which you observe differences in behavior between the two widgets in response to various stimuli. The goal is to demonstrate reglib's resilience under duress (as it were). Enjoy.
