Impressive how complete the implementation seems to be (if there would
only be Java8 support ;) ), seems like an awesome project.

Would it theoretically possible to feed the generated LLVM-IR through
the web-assembly backend - assuming the required runtime-components
are ported and the Boehm-GC would support WebAssembly?
