Isn’t that exactly the same as the PPC or S390 versions of V8?

Or the MIPS version of NaCl?

To be clear, folks are trying to figure out how to provide binaries despite

a misunderstanding.

What I’m getting at is: if GTK folks build and host binaries on the
official GTK port site, we should all rejoice.
