I'd like Tim Hatcher to review this, but I have a comment:

I don't like having so much code copied and pasted out of JavaScriptCore. We
should add a suitable function to JavaScriptCore that gets us the appropriate
JSValue. It's fine for aeDescFromJSValue to convert from JSValue to AEDesc, but
it shouldn't convert from, say, an object instance to a boolean as it does in
the ObjectType case. We should create something on the JavaScriptCore side that
converts to a boolean, number, or string, and also returns an "isDate" flag.
Then the AE conversion can concentrate on things like converting the date
format, etc.

This would prevent us from having to expose bool_object.h as a Private header
and give us slightly better encapsulation for JavaScriptCore.
