At the moment the main page relies solely on Google's CDN to provide jQuery. When that CDN is down (I've seen that once or twice) the page should fall back to a local copy. E.g., in the HTML5 Boilerplate there is:

<script src="//"></script>
<script>window.jQuery || document.write('<script src="js/vendor/jquery-1.8.3.min.js"><\/script>')</script>
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  This is just a hack around something that doesn't happen very often; our site is more likely to be down than the CDN is. If anything, we'd just serve it from our server or Cloudfront all the time.
