JSCocoa on the iPhone

EDIT JSCocoa now works on the iPhone ! Get the latest version from Github. Post below now irrelevant.

For those of you interested, JSCocoa now compiles fine on the iPhone but crashes in mprotecting memory used for Javascript classes. That limits JSCocoa to standard scripting (creating and manipulating ObjC objects, calling C functions) but creating ObjC classes in Javascript would have to be done another way : eg create a dummy derived UIView in ObjC, and add dummy methods calling their Javascript counterparts. This would be done once per class and then be transparent to the user. Implementation wise, this requires 'pre-derivation' of classes and looks quite strange :)

Any ideas on that ?
