Rockets needs to have a way to load not just arbitrary Javascript in the footer, but Javascript libraries.

This is because sometimes you want to load a library that depends on jQuery, and because of this the libraries have to be loaded in the right order. jQuery isn't loaded until the footer is displayed, so dependent libraries can't be loaded inside the script itself.

I can just add an optional list of libraries to load (in list form) and make that an optional argument for (display-footer)

Um... okay. Javascript is actually where the most advancement in web technologies is happening today.

Also worth noting that Javascript was designed as a LISP-like language originally, then retrofitted to Java-like syntax because of a directive from Netscape management.
