To be more precise, the only issues we know of are 
and http://bugs.jquery.com/ticket/8744 which are caused by libraries 
assuming that a script will no longer execute once removed from the 
document when doing the JSONP thing.  It's not site breakage per se, but 
does cause random exceptions to be thrown (which don't affect site 
functionality, as far as I can tell).
