For executing Mercury code, it sounds like you want a javascript backend
(or possibly a "generic imperitive representation" backend), similar to
the existing Java backend.  But javascript is very slow, sometimes
orders of magnitude slower than C/Mercury/Java.  How about... using the
existing Java backend, and execute Java on client side?  I suspect that
this is less work, and more useful, than executing (interpreting)
whatever representation is output by the proposed pragma.
