If you're looking for adding custom JavaScript API at compile time and 
make it available for all scripting contexts, there is no problem with 
that (and there's not a big difference between WebKit1 and 2 for that 
matter). You can start by familiarizing yourself with an IDL file that's 
similar to your purposes, and look at the related .cpp and *Custom.cpp 
files that implement the API that corresponds to that IDL file.
