     And the most useful thing about Web Workers to me at the moment is
for servicing JS callbacks in something which is truly a separate
thread. Ideally, I would service all JS callbacks with Smalltalk
processes, but the cost of just getting back into Squeak to begin
servicing a JS callback is extremely high.
