This has recently been added and the patch is good. It's just revealing a problem with our timers. The test is posting a message recursively, and also starts a timeout timer to finish the test. The timeout timer is never fired for us, because WebCore timers have lower priority than the one used by postMessage. ScriptExecutionContext uses Document::postTask, that uses scheduleOnMainThread, that uses RunLoop::dispatch(). We are not setting any priority for the timer used by RunLoop::dispatch, so it's using the default. RunLoop::dispatch is normally used to schedule tasks between threads, or just to ensure something is run in a different run loop iteration, but in general nothing urgent as a graphics redraw or something like that. It's quite common to use g_idle_add to schedule tasks between threads, so I think it makes sense to use G_PRIORITY_DEFAULT_IDLE for the RunLoop timer.
