If you have specific ideas about changes to the JS bindings we can go  
over them soon. The general idea of factoring out a separate class to  
handle security policy seems good. "Manager" is one of the things in  
class names I tend to be allergic to. Instead of "SecurityManager" I  
would consider names like "SameOriginPolicy" or "SameOriginAuditor" or  
something like that (assuming the main security-related thing it does  
is enforce the same-origin policy).

I don't really have the expertise to comment on the V8 changes you  
cited above.

In general I can do lunch meetings in SF with some advance notice, but  
this coming week is probably out, at least for me, due to various  
prior commitments. (I think we have a tentative plan to have lunch  
with some Chrome folks at Apple's Cupertino campus though.)
