ECMAScript V4.0

Is there any more work being done on this - I scoured the ECMA site
but there appears to be no work being done on it.
Or is it just my searching technique...

However, there is still a chance that people will/can push the
issue as the Mozilla Organization has recently become an ECMA member after
Netscape (had to?) quit. There should be a bug in Bugzilla to vote for,
if there is not, a new bug could be filed against this issue.

I've sent a request to ECMA for some clarification. I'll let you know what happens.
I'll also see if I can find out from mozilla if theres anything going on there.
