Hi Nathan

Thanks for the swift feedback (and starring my repository)! I'll consider
filing issues with things that need to be done, when I can think of
something. I'm totally new to ChucK, so ChucKJS is also a way for me to
learn ChucK itself. As such, I'm not at all sure if this project is even
feasible, but I'm treating it as a fun experiment. Hopefully, it can work
well enough at some point to complement the original ChucK.

Merry Christmas.
