We proposed a shared memory concept a long time ago:

Although it helps to reduce the message passing (decoding/encoding) costs
of large buffers, it still involves JS on the other side.

We are definitely interested to improve JS with multicore support. Now
even phones have 2-4 cores, and would be great to use them for computing.
