    The OP was referring to being able to open "VS Code" (a version of it)
    inside the browser. It's a "cloud IDE" sort of thing.

Ah. We could open Emacs locally though, using an extension.

I think the idea is more along the lines of having a read-to-use VM with an appropriate version of Emacs installed, with all declared package dependencies and probably additional tools as well (e.g. third-party community sometimes uses stuff like eldev, or buttercup for testing).

Then you only need to hack up a change, you're able to test it without having to install anything, then you do a commit/push/PR.

All this is perhaps less critical for Emacs Lisp than for other languages and environments, but even so, it could lower the barrier for contribution further.
