One thing you might look at is Firefox's Javascript engine. In Javascript, calling toString() on a function object returns a prettified version of the function's code. For an example, paste this (all one line) into the Firefox Error Console (Tools -> Error Console):

(function () { var i=0; for(i=0;i<10;i++) doSomething(); doSomethingElse(); }).toString()

I'm not familiar with the internals of Firefox's Javascript implementation, but this may be helpful in some roundabout way. :)
