Maybe, but maybe not for the reasons cited above. We will have to see how this whole Apple / Google divorce plays out.
"Supporting V8 places a considerable burden on webkit, there are a number of
large, cumbersome and expensive abstractions required for to support multiple
JS engines (see the original discussions on the topic from many years ago).
Additionally we will only be supporting JSC in WebKit2, so I don't think anything could
convince me at least that maintaining support for multiple JS engines is good for
the project." - Oliver Hunt
