Is it possible to port NNG to Lean 4? Will we do it?

I would imagine that porting the Lean code would be a very pleasant exercise, and indeed a few weeks ago someone posted to this Zulip a bunch of NNG stuff in Lean 4. I have no clue about how one turns Lean 4 code into a browser game though so cannot comment on that. It would probably be not unfair to say that this is not high priority for me right now (although of course if someone else wants to take it on I'm not going to be complaining!). However once we're at the stage where we are expecting newcomers to use Lean 4 rather than Lean 3 (and I have no clue about when this will happen, I am adopting a "wait and see" approach here because I have no idea about any of the subtleties involved) then I would imagine that this would become a much higher priority, because NNG seems to work as a way of attracting people with a mathematical interest to Lean.

step 1: figure out how to compile Lean 4 to Wasm
step 2: figure out how to connect the Lean 4 server with a web editor
step 3: remove "and don't forget the comma"

I noticed rw doesn't like to apply refl rfl afterwards now, so Kevin will be happy about that!

I prefer whitespace sensitivity
