[webkit-dev] Regarding SquirrelFish Extreme JIT portability...

In reading Maciej Stachowiak's page at 
http://webkit.org/blog/214/introducing-squirrelfish-extreme/, it talks 
about native code generation and platform support. I would like to point 
out that some platforms do not allow runtime native code generation, 
either due to hardware restrictions or due to licensing requirements of 
the hardware vendor. In either case it is usually due to 
security-related reasons. So the ability for JavaScript to continue to 
work indefinitely without native code generation would be necessary if 
it is to remain portable.
