What ecmascript engine?

I've started playing around with SpiderMonkey for a Javascript engine.  Much better packaged then it used to be.  I might go with this instead of ngs-js since it is being actively maintained.  What I need to evaluate:

Since the thing I could really use right now is something that translates MusicXML files output from Finale into ABC it makes sense to focus on this feature first.  Combining SpiderMonkey with a libxml wrapper would make it very easy to implement.  Might also simplify ABC to MusicXML output since I already have a Javascript prototype from Phiz web app framework project.

Need to think about this more.
