The qmlcachegen tool is not equivalent of the compiler. The cachegen parses 
the QML structure and stores a platform-independent bytecode. It does not 
store the JIT.

I spoke to Simon about this and he said that the JIT gain would be nice, but 
it's not necessary right now. It would add a lot of complication while we 
still have more to be gained from elsewhere.
