JavaScript objects and the JavaScriptCore API objects (except  
JSStringRef) are garbage collected. So sometime after the last  
reference goes away, they will release their memory.

In this case when the global object goes away. If you want to  
"release" them, you can call JSObjectDeleteProperty to remove the  

You also need to call JSStringRelease here when you are done with the  
jsstr variable.
