As I understand it, running under NaCl requires reworking the JIT and has
real problems doing the self-modifying code involved in inline caches,
etc.  I want something that doesn't involve running under a managed
run-time (the VM is a managed run-time, layering two on top of each other
has always seemed like a poor choice to me).  And if NaCl made it really
easy to do why haven't any of these projects delivered yet?
