Thanks for the clarification.  I will go ahead and try adding that.

This is a good segue into another question I have.

What is the current thinking on all of the "using WTF::..." statements
at the end of many header files in JSC?  For example, what was the
original reason behind including those, and is there any chance that
they will be taken out at a later date (or has that already been ruled
out)?  I searched a bit and didn't come across any discussion of this.
