We could introduce a file called WebKitTestSupportQt.cpp that implements injectInternalsObject(JSContextRef). It would unbox the v8 context from the wrapper and call the v8 version of WebCoreTestSupport::injectInternalsObject. So it's a bit complicated but at least there would be no ifdef needed in WebKitTestRunner.

My point is that WebKit2/v8 integration is causing trouble even before it officially started to happen. That's not a good sign.

Lack of support for non-webkit.org JavaScriptCore substitutes is not a weakness of WebKit2, it's a strength. The code is more hackable, tests are easier to maintain etc.
