I awoke this morning with a plan in mind to convert X3DScripts to script
code, using new Function. So far, I have just the first few steps.  A big
next step is parsing function names.  Comments are welcome. So are
contributions to https://github.com/coderextreme/x3domx3dscripting.

let scripts = [];

scripts[0] = new Function (

// CDATA text follows

function initialize() {
function shutdown() {
// add the following after the CDATA text
  // I need to generate this assignment for all the functions in the
script. I don't have a good way to parse the function names yet.
this.shutdown = shutdown;
return this;`)();
