Hi Christophe.

AFAIK ClojureScript is pretty much feature complete as opposed to Emu,
there's a risk for confusion and perhaps bad PR if an online REPL
based on Emu becomes the de facto way of playing around with PL for
novices, ie "Why can't I do X which the manual seems to imply?!!" or
"This crap sucks, it can't even do Y." when it in fact can do Y.

Some prominent disclaimer should be there, perhaps with information on
what features are not available.

The fact that PL is now apt-get installable makes it trivial to test
out the real thing too.
