Short summary of the current state of the rakudo-js grant

nqp-js-on-js (NQP compiled to JavaScript and running on node.js) passes it's test suit (almost, there is a bug with how regexes compiled at runtime capture stuff which I haven't yet figured out).
While nqp-js-on-js compiles parts of rakudo (with a minor bug fix) it turn out for some reason it's unacceptably slow on some of the larger files (like Perl6::World).
As such I have turned my attention to figuring out what's the problem and speeding nqp-js-on-js up.
Hopefully the next blog posts will be more detailed and contain the description of some nifty optimizations.
