Yes, I'm already using the simulator for running tests and testing local
ios builds. I was just wondering whether it was possible to produce and
install a local build for development and testing purpose on a device.
Apparently from your reply and Michael's this seems quite unlikely with
the public iOS SDK :-( I guess it would be nice to mention this
limitation on https://webkit.org/building-webkit/
