I only wonder why it is called Nix? Is it named for http://nixos.org/?
Or is just supposed to be a generic *nix Unix? Maybe a better name for
the port would simply be "jsc" or "js"...? It's just when I see "Nix" I
don't think "JSC only."

Did you test this with build-jsc? I guess it's fine to make 'build-
webkit --nix' do the right thing, but I bet it'd be more convenient to
just use the build-jsc command.
