[webkit-dev] Tagged assertions...

These assertions can’t be uniquely identified if they are repeated in the same function


And more importantly the same function can have the same assertion repeated in multiple places 

void function()
	int result = 0;

	result += someFunction();
	ASSERT(result > 0);
	result += anotherFunction();
	ASSERT(result > 0);

I am not saying we have a problem that we have to fix.  I am just saying if we need to uniquely identify the bugs related to a specific assertion easily or we need to automate the linkage between the assertions and Bugzailla, we need tags for the assertions.
