[Haskell-cafe] Emscripten: compiling LLVM to JavaScript

Time ago YHC compiler (not longer active) got additional backend that
generated JS from Yhc.Core.
It was working quite ok. You can still find demos online.
Generating JS (high level code) from Ghc.Core feels better than from low
level code of LLVM.

Is GHC.core very different from YHC.core?
