The main problem was QtScript itself which exposed to many implementation 
details. We had problems with many things, especially with QScriptContext 
class and debugging api. In the end we managed to port it in 95% but it was 
far from being perfect. Anyway QtScript is marked as "Done" and will not be 
longer actively developed. So it should not be taken into account during this 

QML uses V8 because it was designed as a JS engine, not as a JS engine for a 
browser. Year ago V8 had a lot better api then JSC, I'm not sure if it still 
the case, but probably yes.
