There are a few restricted subsets of Javascript, sometimes with different syntax, such as CoffeeScript. They fix some of the more obvious warts in the language but still get the benefit of its wide adoption and high quality runtimes. I imagine GNOME programming could be done in one of those.

I tried CoffeeScript for a bit, but ended up just using JavaScript directly. JS has one rule that I get tripped up on (though much less so these days): the semicolon insertion. I kept getting mixed up with CoffeeScript's whitespacing and other magicallisms that I decided making sure the JS was clean and ensuring "use strict" was being used was going to be less of a burden.
