We could name a couple of big ones (GMail was already mentioned before),
they already have designs ready to go into test as soon as they get
SharedScript in a dev build. If there was no desire from actual app
developer teams for SharedScript, we would not have the reason to continue
with it long time ago.

That also pretty much means if we won't do SharedScript, we'll need to
explore other opportunities toward efficient sharing of code and data which
does not make people to write a multithreaded UI as SharedWorker solution
would do. We have practically zero positive response to SharedWorkers being
used this way. Granted, this is "just one company" but the limited
unscientific poll kind of shows the direction...
