It's possible to build the JS emulator into a single-file "app" (e.g.
emu.html) that you can use locally from your computer *OR* by dumping it 
any web host, with no special server rules set up for hosting it. When I 
actively contributing to Michael's emulator, I'd done so and worked out a
quick proof-of-concept.

This can be useful for carrying around a portable emulator with you 
(e.g., on
a flash drive) or that children without a home computer could even use in a
classroom or public library--without having to get permission from the
administrators to install additional software.

This weekend, I'll come up with something more fit for mass consumption 
my original prototype and post to the list.  (Caveat: it might not track 
the new functionality that has been added to the emulator in the meantime.)
