[webkit-dev] Running v8 in the major platform ports (win and mac)

I want to use Webkit for a project I'm working on but I would prefer
the v8 JavaScript engine for a variety of reasons. I did see that
there was a Qt v8 port and a gtk v8 port.

Has anyone attempted a port that uses v8 for Windows and/or Mac OS X?

Looking at the previous ones (GTK and Qt), I think it's within my
technical reach to write such a port. If I were successful, and
assuming it meets engineering standards (the tests pass, code
reviewed, etc.), would it likely be accepted as a patch for Webkit?
