Thanks for the info/links, Dimitri.

I still believe that it's possible. Laszlo Systems has created a very
large Flash based RIA called Laszlo Webtop. They can cross-compile the
app to JavaScript, an the performance is about 70-80% of the speed you
have in Flash (Webtop is about 2 mb as an SWF, and around 2.2 mb as a
JavaScript file, if I rememer correctly). That was about 2 1/2 years
ago, and I haven't been following the recent improvements.

I wasn't aware of the work the Spoon group had done in that area.
