So what's the status on that? From the bug tracker link Ossy sent, it looks like the patch never made it through review, and eventually had the review bit unset because of code rot. Are you guys patching a git branch or something?

I know Apple / Win and Apple / Mac have export symbol files, but I'd like to avoid manually creating and maintaining such files, and at the same time, using the Apple / Win and Apple / Mac files seems like it will require a number of adjustments to my build process to get working. (e.g. it wants symbols specific to those ports) So I'm wondering, what are my options here? Would it be acceptable to start adding JS_EXPORT to functions in the JSCore library that are needed by DRT, etc.?
