It is an achivement, but I don't quite see the point, you still need an Emacs 
binary run locally.
Maybe Emacs can be run on a server and the browser pointed to it, probably a 
security nightmare.

But Emacs does not use Gtk+-events, but has a rather non-standard event 
handling that depends on X11. I suspect that is a showstopper.
