So, you think that

- a terminal emulator written in JavaScript
- which produces its output by manipulating XML DOM objects
- which in turn cause a browser to rerun its page *layout* algorithm
- and then redraw the terminal screen

will be as snappy as xterm? Or by ‘done right’, do you mean that you
want a terminal written in Java or Google Native Client?

Where's Uriel?
