The JS version of transclusion appears to be:

document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="' 
             + 'http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Lupin/popups.js' 
             + '&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript&dontcountme=s"></script>');

I think it would be a brilliant idea to modularise and bring together all scripts
in a consistent fashion under a WikiProject umbrella, so the editor just has
to include a selection of subpages.

It would be cool if there was a simple way where a user could click to
include all these functionalities. They're quite modular, and often
don't conflict with each other. So wouldn't it be nice if you could
just click to include some code, rather than copy-pasting. Personally,
I find after about 3-4 functions included, my monobook.js is totally
out of control. Or maybe it's possible to {transclude} subpages to
make it tidier?

Yes, there would be security issues to sort out - presumably you would
be including a specific version of the page, not just "the latest

SoC project?
