Con for jQuery: "takes up space on the web server". If you don't have 261kb free disk space you have serious issues. Con for JavaScript: "enables client hacking" ?

CON/JS: " relatively easy to learn", please define relatively. CON/Jquery but it doen't depend on jquery: you can't cache by command the entire jquery framework. the script tag should have a parameter like cache=1, the entire thing is reloaded when the user refresh, with mobile devices in mind.
