Given that _javascript_ is prototyped and seemingly ill-suited to

As one of the lead developers of gjs currently working on it at the moment (by sheer coincidence, it usually doesn't get much development), why do you say _javascript_ is ill-suited to GObject-Introspection? What problems do you have with GJS/_javascript_ at the moment?
I believe these points need to be addressed before an app deployment and
sandboxing mechanism are even employed within GNOME.
