[webkit-dev] Rewriting binding code generator, maybe?

Can we rewrite CodeGenerator*.pm in Ruby or Python?  I feel that the
current code is very hard to understand and hack on.  In particular we have
CodeGenerator.pm and CodeGeneratorJS.pm (CodeGeneratorV8.pm has been
removed), and we need to merge them anyway.

I've seen many people expressing their inability to improve the binding
code because of its being written in Perl.

I'm not necessarily volunteering to do the work myself at this moment but I
wanted to see if there is any interest in this idea or not.
