I don’t know. The idea is that the testing code has access to WebCore code, but isn’t compiled into the WebCore framework/library/DLL.

> 2) What does building a separate library give us over just plopping this in WebCore target?

I’m sorry you missed our WebKit Contributors Meeting session on this. The static library would be linked into tools like DumpRenderTree. Outside the test tool, the testing code would not be present in the WebCore binary, so it would not increase code size or introduce code paths that could be exploited by bad guys.
