Thanks for your comments! that definitely gives some context, and I agree
with everything you said in your post, and also in the other thread. This
only makes sense if we can do it with the current code of LibreOffice, only
adapting it at the edges and/or hinges. I'm mulling over various options
that still need to mature a little bit in my head.

But rest assured that none of them involve things like porting millions of
lines of LibreOffice code to JavaScript. :)
