Python has a concept 'extension modules' where module can be
implemented in c/c++. Also the idea of running native code in the
browser has been put forward by Google's native client for running x86
in the client. MS - i think - are researching something similar.

c/c++ isn't going anywhere and the relationship between ecmascript and
c/c++ is interesting. Are there any proposals for something like
'extension modules' for ES6 or do the variations in the engine
implementations preclude such a thing?
