Sorry if this is clear in the specs but can you explain how sizing the
canvas works?


   // main.html
   <canvas></canvas>
   <script>
    var canvas = document.getElementsByTagName('canvas')[0];
    var worker = new Worker('clock.js');
    var proxy = canvas.transferControlToProxy());
    worker.postMessage(proxy, [proxy]);

    setTimeout(function() {
        canvas.width = 200;   // does this work? What happens?
    }, 4000);
   </script>

   // clock.js worker
   onmessage = function (event) {
     var context = new CanvasRenderingContext2d();
     event.data.setContext(context);
     setInterval(function () {
       context.width = 400;  // Can I do this? What happens when I do?
       context.clearRect(0, 0, context.width, context.height);
       context.fillText(0, 100, new Date());
       context.commit();
     }, 1000);
   };
