Both jQuery and Dojo have a lot to recommend them, but Dojo, I think, has
the edge for large apps; it gives you a class and package structure that's
almost like using a "proper" language. ;) You can get a similar effect by
piecing together jQuery, Backbone and several other libraries, but Dojo
gives you it all in one. As ever, though, there's more than one way to skin
a cat!
