I wonder if somebody tried to compile lucy to JavaScript with
http://emscripten.org (C/C++ to JavaScript compiler). There are some
successful projects like https://github.com/medialize/sass.js/ to
bring new technologies to the JavaScript world from C/C++. IN the case
of lucene-like text indexer / search - this is for sure an area that
JavaScript lacks software. Also I wonder if the clownfish thing won't
make it difficult to perform such translation. So, before I tried, I
would like to know your thoughts.

Thanks! and BTW, lucy is very good ! Keep it up!
