   I was wondering if there are any plans or if there's anyone 
interested in adding support for E4X to WebKit's JavaScript engine.

  What is E4X? 

    E4X stands for JavaScript Extension for XML or ECMAScript for XML. 
E4X is a simple extension for Javascript that adds direct support for 
XML to JavaScript. E4X is a international ECMA standard and the next 
version of Mozilla's Firefox browser (that is, v1.1) will include E4X 

   Here are some links about E4X:

   o Standard ECMA-357: ECMAScript for XML (E4X) Specification @
