I am wondering if just going directly to V8 instead of using Qt as the middle man would be the best course of action, that way you get all the speed benefits that V8 offers, and no need to mess with any conversion code, with the only disadvantage, that I can think of, is adding another dependency.
Or, will this introduce linker errors with Qt's version of V8, if all we need is QtCore.lib & QtGui.lib?
