Yes, it's Javascript code. Ideally I'd want to sandbox that code and
not give it access to NodeJS functions but I haven't yet found a way to
do that without some performance hit.

The custom script would appear as an option within presets (like set or
refresh). The precondition part will be extended to include time and
event fields, but it will be possible to check for events from within
the preset too.
