I have read the discussions about FPC using LLVM and the reasons against it (which I fully understand and support). But a friend of mine
called my attention to this: https://github.com/kripken/emscripten/wiki

From what I have seen this is quite an amazing project. And being in the process of deciding if I port my FPC 3D-Engine to JS or write a new one from scratch this would be the perfect solution if only FPC could create LLVM bitcode.
Since I know virtually nothing about compiler development and LLVM and it looks like it would not be easy to use LLVM as a backend I won't be able to change this.
But one can always dream.
