Feature Request - Dojo build to use in Windows 8

The up-coming release of Windows 8 enables Metro-style apps to be written entirely with JavaScript? + WinJS (Microsoft's linkage library).

However, there are restrictions in certain JavaScript? features that may be troublesome for vanilla Dojo. There are also some other quirks, e.g.

  • Only IE10+ (so no webKitMobile and probably needs a dedicated ie10 set of features)
  • No innerHtml
  • WinJS has its own set of Metro widgets, so no dijit -- but perhaps possible to wrap a dijit over the Metro widgets
  • probably needs to be revised to fit into WinJS's page model

I believe that a WinJS-dedicated build of Dojo will be a great help getting Dojo established in the Windows 8 user base. No other library supports Windows 8 at this point (not even jQuery or any plugin), so everybody starts off at ground zero at the same time, and it is land-grab time.
