There are quite a number of projects by now that compile the language of
your choice down to the JavaScript instruction set, if you will. The
Google Web Toolkit for instance, or Pyjamas. Even for C and C++ there
are ongoing efforts, http://code.google.com/p/nativeclient/ for one, and
http://code.google.com/p/emscripten/ as another.
