I find the mere thought fascinating. I've been mulling rather  
intensely over what the ideal platform would be to develop apps based  
entirely on Web technology, and the programming language issue has  
been bugging me (to the point that I've been considering writing up  
Ruby as the way to go). This could rock my world. I found some info  
about it through Google, but do you have any idea on how seriously it  
is being pursued and how practical it is (in terms of the viability  
of the JS output)?
