That sounds like a good idea. I hate having to figure out mangled symbol
names. But let's not use abbreviations like WK. Also, it's symbol exports
from WebCore so I'd prefer calling it WEBCORE_EXPORT.

Another possibility is to ride existing WebCore.exp.in somehow.

But mangled symbol names will be different on different platforms so I
don't think that's a good idea.
