I think the key question here would be whether we want this to be push or pull – whether JSC should be responsible for yielding after a period of execution, or whether there should be the ability to message JSC asynchronously to request a callback be made.  The latter might be be more useful in a shell debugger (e.g. to handle ctrl-C), and may or may not also be useful for a profiler (depending on how close to the point a signal is received we'd be able to handle it).

It is also possible that we could support both, and it is possible the two mechanisms might not be unrelated.
