No magic. The Clamato bootstrap code parses the Smalltalk code and
generates the equivalent Javascript. If you look at the JQuery class
in the Clamato browser you can see how the jQuery API is wrapped in

What's tricky is debugging–sometimes it's hard to map an error message
from the browser back into the Smalltalk source.
