Thanks, I hope to be able to spend more time on it in the future. 
There are still a lot of things that need to be improved.

I am using opaque JS objects. Spasm already has Sumtypes and 
supports Any as well, so it is going to move forward from that.

Having said that, the lineSeries data in the tradingview example 
is implemented with a proxy object that directly accessed memory 
from the wasm module. There are pros and cons to either approach.

Also, I have to take into account the upcoming interface-types
