FrontCompiler Updates

Finally I've found some time and implemented a new feature for the FrontCompiler project.

This feature compresses your javascript code by using the tokens dictionary mechanism and then create another javascript which will recompose your original javascript code on the users browser.

Reconstruction happens pretty quick, almost unnoticeable. And this gives you extra 20-40% of compression over the usual front-compiler compression, which as we all know is already better than the YUI compressor's.

Say the latest Prototype v1.6.0.3 was compressed from 138 kB to 59 kB. MooTools was compressed from 98k to 50k, etc.

You can grab the latest, already compressed files here

Try it, it's just awesome!
