Hi all. Its been a while.

I just pushed a large patch that will need some serious work.


It allows the v8 js engine and debugger to work with the gtk webkit port.
Including remote debugging for arm or embedded platforms using chromedevtools.

I'm also emailing the list because to get it accepted will require
some help from a number of individuals some at google and the gtk

I doubt I can do it on my own or at least not in a timely manner.

In my opinion getting both engines equally supported across most ports
would be good for the entire community so I hope people are
interested. The Gtk dependencies are minor and it should be trivial to
support other ports.

Of course not everything is working for example dumptree is turned off
the HTML debugger is off etc. But I think its initial base.
