I think the idea of a standalone JSC is not really incompatible with
our current setup. javascriptcoregtk doesn't seem to include any GTK+
specific code, except interaction with the Glib runloop in
inspector/EventLoop.cpp. Perhaps that could move out of JSC entirely
or be part of small wrapper library.
