SqueakJS has full support for thisContext, non-local returns, resumable
exceptions, etc. AFAIK it's the only web-based Smalltalk that is
full-featured this way, including LargeInts, allInstances, finalization and
so on. That's why it can run an unmodified Squeak image (even Cog/Spur
images, but not Sista yet).
