I programmed a Facebook-like interface where I scroll up and down very 
fast and it ends up crashing. I can try to get a backtrace on the iOS 
and file a bug report. But that's a head's up.

Which is great but does it compile the Javascript code as well?

"libarchive" and it works flawlessly:

No it's just a Clang-based layer that injects complex C++ code into 
existing C & C++98 projects. You can use any C++11 compiler to compile 
the resulting code.
