WebKit is not intended to support multiple JS engines, and you should  
not try.  JavaScriptCore is the JS engine that is included in WebKit,  
there is no real reason to use any other engine and attempting to  
attach your own JS engine will result in a huge amount of both short  
and long term effort on your part for no gain.
