Since asm.js came on the scene, and now Web Assembly people have created CPython patches to support building CPython with emscripten. See:

* https://github.com/PeachPy/EmCPython -- Python 2.7
* https://github.com/dgym/cpython-emscripten/tree/master/3.5.2/patches -- Python 3.5.2
* https://github.com/iodide-project/pyodide/tree/master/cpython/patches -- Python 3.7.4

To ease the compiling of CPython with emscripten it would be helpful if patches that achieved these ends for the compiling to Web Assembly with emscripten were built into the upstream source repository itself.

If web assembly were to became a supported compilation target of the upstream CPython repository this would significantly reduce the friction of allowing CPython, and the latest CPython, to become a language readily usable within the browser.

Cheers,
Simon
