I also tend to agree.  Killing stuff that nobody seriously cares about
is sad but good, particularly when it adds some otherwise-unnecessary
levels of abstractions everywhere.  We should ideally wait e.g. one
month for feedback from other developers that may still have plans

And no, before someone asks, asmjs wouldn't need the OO backend but
more likely hacks on top of the LL backend.  The OO-vs-LL levels of
abstractions are wrong there.

A bientôt,
