Ah, webgl...

I had a look at this some time ago, and got depressed. 
Quickly closed the browser and didn't look back. 
Same for webaudio :(

We have a test project that helps with converting APIs, 
but it's still very rudimentary and needs lots of help. 
Check democlasstopas.pas in the demos.

Glad to hear it, we need more such success stories !

If you could make a new wiki page with some information about it, and link
to it from the main pas2js page, that would be hugely appreciated !
