Could a bitcoin client be done in javascript, using WebGL to access the GPU for processing/mining?

Would be great there was a torrent file of all referenced materials of the paper: "How to Build Time-Lock Encryption" by Tibor Jager. And having its magnet link published on bitcoin blockchain!

Could a bitcoin client be done in javascript,

Yes.

http://Blockchain.info/wallet and Strongcoin are two Javascript-based wallets that do all the crypto in Javascript on the browser.  http://brainwallet.org/#tx would be such a client too I suppose.  They do send the transaction to a hosted service which then broadcasts the transaction.

using WebGL to access the GPU for processing/mining?

As a neat idea, yes that could be (and has been) done.

As a business proposition.  Bad idea.  Read up on ASICs.

I know about ASICs but I was thinking in terms of something comparable to 'Satoshi client'.
