Julie, Matthias,
I restored the patch, rebased, fixed the tests, added the test files as 
Radomir suggested and removed the .jshintrc file.

The original patch was WIP and I left the failing tests intentionally, 
so that it was easier to compare the two solutions (node.js vs pure 
qunit). But as I wrote, it's cleaned up by now and only contains the latter.
