  I've thought about how to implement this in CPython; essentially,
what's needed is to convert JavaScript source code to a Python
structure accepted by the parser.sequence2ast() function; the
resulting "ast object" can then be compiled to a Python code object
and run in a JavaScript environment (implemented as an rexec.RExec
  This is more tedious than hard; I'll try to pursue it further.  I
have a tokenizer around here somewhere, but that's as far as
implementation has gone.
