Use the source Luke

There is an existing mechanism for handling source level debugging in languages that are translated to Javascript. The Google Closure compiler can generate source maps which can be used by a number of browsers, and despite some discussion to the contrary, the TypeScript compiler seems to have the ability to do this as well. It’s really nice being able to see the full source for the TypeScript compiler on codeplex and also interesting to see TypeScript interface definitions already available for a number of libraries. Now to find the excuse to use TypeScript in a project at work!
