I think an important issue is whether asm.js can be translated to 
something which can either be executed from a shell, or whether there's 
a runtime environment (e.g. a Firefox extension) that provides its own 
shell plus standard utilities including make etc.

If asm.js can only be translated to something that will run as a GUI 
applet in the context of Firefox, it's going to be very difficult to run 
the FPC test programs that (in principle at least) demonstrate the 
compiler's correctness.
