[webkit-dev] Easing printf based debugging in WebKit with an helper.

I like this patch.

But I don't quite see why this couldn't live in WTF.  It would certainly be useful from places in JSC and WTF, so it would be unfortunate if this was WebCore-only.  And I don't see the circular dependency.  And if you wanted to have a wtfPrint() for IntRect, then couldn't you put the appropriate overload(s) in IntRect's header file?
