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.

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