I suspect that most people run Shaper using node, and I'm thinking
that it's just not worth it to keep support for the bare js/d8 shells.
node startup time used to be pretty bad but I think that has been
improved quite a lot. Should we start using standard node/CommonJS
require for Shaper?

Feel free to chime in with your thoughts in the github pull request
directly or in this thread.
Michael - how would this affect you (as a Rhino user)? I know that
you've been working on CommonJS-style require for Rhino.
Here's to a happy new year to the brave early adopters! :)
