SpiderMonkey here is 1.7.0, which I *think* is the version used in FF3.
I'm running the benchmarks on Ubuntu Heron which unfortunately has a
buggy version of xulrunner that won't let me use the built-in Javascript
shell, so I can't been sure.

SquirrelFish doesn't seem to be usable yet --- certainly, last time I
looked I couldn't find any actual source code.

Point of information: I've just found that kjs, the engine used in
Konqueror, has a command line shell; it doesn't work well enough to use
in Clue's benchmarks, but appears to get a score of 0.6!
