I think that we should try solving this problem in order to know if we have to convince the community in the first place.

Since Google is controlling which version of V8 are the bindings in WebCore compatible with, it is unlikely that we can keep QtWebKit trunk compiling with the version in qtjsbackend. If we want to make it possible we might have to update WebCore bindings later, in release branches, anyway and continue using JSC on trunk.

Or is there any other option?
