We've been moving this lib quite a bit already. If we move it again, I'd
prefer it would end up at it's final location. The move was done before we
had the decision to keep QtCore independent of V8 and to separate the QJS*
classes and the QML engine into it's own module.

With the above decision it might make sense to move V8, the QJS* classes
and the QML engine all into the same shared library.

Kent & Aaron, any thoughts?
