[Vm-dev] [OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-vm] WASM Compile Target? (#387)

Hello all! As some of you might be aware, there has been a lot of progress in the web-world in developing [WebAssembly](https://webassembly.org/). Many environments and languages can now compile to the wasm binary format. Projects are doing things like [putting full Python interpreters and environments in the browser](https://github.com/iodide-project/pyodide), etc. There is even a nascent movement to come up with a consistent [system interface standard](https://hacks.mozilla.org/2019/03/standardizing-wasi-a-webassembly-system-interface/) for WebAssembly, allowing developers to run wasm code on any platform -- not just the web.
My question is this: what would it take to get the opensmalltalk-vm to compile to WebAssembly and has anyone involved with it considered the option so far?
There would be a great many advantages to running a Smalltalk in the browser this way.
