Thanks for the quick reply.

The docs I was reading were in fact the Apple docs, which AFAIK are the 
only "docs" for JavaScriptCore.  When working at the API level, I try to 
stick to "docs" instead of "code", but sometimes I cheat :-)  Actually, 
I learned a lot by printing out "pointer values", without even looking 
at the impl.

Maybe it would make sense for webkit.org to host something similar to 
the apple docs, located here,

so that mortals could contribute back to that level of documentation. 
At the minimum, I suspect the turn around time in getting changes to 
such doc would be quicker than going through official Apple support.

I'll file a report at the apple site in the meantime though.
