[webkit-dev] Is WebKit's javascript subpar?

Not to be a spoilsport, but Jonathan 'Wolf' Rentzsch is not someone  
who would pan WebKit without good reason. He did mention  
script.aculo.us's unit tests failing.

My main question is: Is WebKit's JS worse than FF's, or simply not  
the same, which could lead to breakage.
