The only thing I really like about Coffeescript is how they got rid of var declarations by adding lexical scope. Nothing wrong with all the other features in Coffeescript, but I dont need them, I’ll use other languages for that. Im wondering if its possible to take just that one feature out of Coffeescript and make a preprocessor script so I can program in Javascript with just that feature? I also like that Coffeescript gets rid of semicolon delimiting, but I have a feeling that is connected with the indentation delimiting features that I dont want. Any info on how I could implement this would be much appreciated.

I also want to mention that node.js and coffeescript finally got in the Mint repos, so Im all set with that.

You might want to check out Kaffeine, which provides implicit var declarations, semi-colons, and some other goodies, but retains a JS-like syntax (complete with curly braces):
