The Script* types are WebCore's view of the bindings.  The templated objects
are the generic bindings view of the engine-specific bindings.  I want to see
how far I can push things, but eventually we might hope that the templated
objects are a relatively thin layer around the JavaScript engine itself.

To specifically answer your question, State<Binding> is ExecState for JSC and
nothing for V8 (because V8 uses statics instead of a state object).

Another way to think about this is to look at ScriptValue and Bindings::Value. 
ScriptValue uses a persistent handle with a managed lifetime, which is how
WebCore wants to think about the bindings, but that's slow and memory
intensive.  Bindings::Value is just a regular value handle, which means zero
