Congratulations on the release!

Although I'm a great fan of Coffeescript, I am and remain a skeptic of the what I've seen of the literate-programming style. Well-written tests or specifications, with integrated documentation-generation tooling, provide many of the same code-structuring benefits without the disadvantage of additional code clutter, and with the advantage of enforceability. Documentation is not enforceable, and notoriously prone to decay.

That being said, this is an interesting idea, and I'll certainly give it a go.
