[webkit-dev] Why are the mock implementations in WebCore/platform?

It seems reasonable to keep mock objects that act solely as the back end to platform/ classes in platform/. I believe Sam was commenting specifically on mock objects that know about things outside platform/. The specific example given was not (afaict) a client interfance. I think it's reasonable to segregate all the mock objects, since their dependencies in general are not limited to platform/, and it doesn't seem great to scatter them around the tree. Refactoring some of the mock objects to reduce dependencies is another possibility, but probably more complicated. It would be good to fix the layering in the meantime as Sam suggested.
