Indeed, but if we set off down the path that would lead to such things in, 
say 5 years, with interesting DAWs of lesser capability emerging along the 
way, that would be really wonderful.  I'm actually curious what will prove 
to be implementable in Javascript over time from a performance point of 
view.  E.g. it's very cool that Javascript is doing FFts with plausible 
performance today, but it will be interesting to see when it can do 20 in 
parallel on a many core chip.  Still, this all looks very, very promising. 
  Thanks!
