now here is a crazy idea: how about running the Intel version of CCL  
on top of the new, and somewhat controversial, Google Native Client?

from Slashdot:

> "Google has announced its Google native client, which enables x86  
> native code to be run securely inside a browser. With Java applets  
> already dead and buried, this could mean the end of the new war  
> between browsers and the various JavaScript engines (V8,  
> Squirrelfish, Tracemonkey). The only question remains whether it can  
> be secured (ala ActiveX) and whether the advantages carry over onto  
> non-x86 platforms. The package is available for download from its  
> Google code site. Hopefully, I can finally write my web apps in asm."
