Hi Eliot--

 > We have at least four different Squeak vm efforts.

      I think JS is a significant platform which, for now, doesn't fit 
the concept of platform, execution artifact, and how that artifact is 
built that we use with the other platforms. (I'm keen to make things 
converge a bit with WebAssembly.) It's a worthy additional front, even 
though the other fronts are understaffed. And JS is significant for both 
the reach it gives our applications, and the large audience of 
developers we can interest in JS/Smalltalk hybrids.

      What additional mutual support do you think there could be?

 > Little community involvement.

      I can't let that pass without noting that I'm involved and 
enthusiastic. :)

      It's okay, let's turn that gloom into a plan!
