[development] php and js in a programmatic block

Hi Fred. I -have- read that, but I guess when I read the description of 
inline referring to the current page... I have to force myself to think 
of a function creating block contents for a function that creates a 
block for a module AS being the current page as opposed to being busy 
-creating- the current page!

With regards to the dynamic values. If I were putting the js directly in 
the module code rather than a .js file, I would do something like:
print "var x='$myvar'";

What's the normal way of handling this when importing a .js? Would I put 
a placeholder in the js and use regex to plug in the values?
