Quote from Steve Yegge:
| I had big plans for Ejacs. I was going to make it a full-featured,
| high-performance JavaScript interpreter, with all the Emacs internals
| surfaced as JavaScript native host objects, so you could write Emacs
| customizations using object-oriented programming. 

>From reading the cited blog, I would guess that this was more a
personnal project from somebody who loves Emacs and Javascript and
started a project that made him learn much more about both.
