Some time ago I found the following problem with parenscipt's dotimes:

>  (js:js (dotimes (i args.length) (print i)))
"for (var i = 0; i != args.length; i = i++) {

As you can see this is an infinite loop unless `args.length' is zero. 
Unfortunately, I was unable to reach parenscript's author and left the
patch in the cliki page.

I've modified it your version of parenscript and send it here. 
Incidentally, `dolist' has the same problem as `dotimes'.  This patch
fixes that, too.


All languages are equal,
but Lisp is more equal than others.
